    I added plumbing for an additional $15 and an "auto feeder" for $7. Hardware costs were probably about $30 and all of the rest is pure grit and determination to get the chicks into their new home.

    Would love to see the finished product and the chickens using it.

    How tall are your front and back walls?

    I understand tight budget. We are having a hard time with chicken snakes here. What I thought was our fort knox (hardware cloth) is not. A snake managed to get in, grrrrr! Good luck with your plans.

    I do plan on adding one. I need to get more material here and I'm on a strict budget. I'd hate to lose my birds but for now the dogs seem to be keeping the predators at bay. I'll update when I add the run.

    Looks GREAT! Do you plan on adding a run? Those woods look awful scary.
