My hubby and I had heard about PVC chicken coops, so this was our attempt at building one. The cornish were getting big and I didn't want to yet put them in with the adult chickens, so this was our medium. For those of you thinking about building a pvc cage, only do it for temporary use. I was warned that they fall apart and warp but did it anyway; it fell apart maybe two- three months later. The entire top bowed in and it kept coming undone. It was good when it was good, but it was really bad when it was bad lol.
