    4-9-11 Chick Hotel: newly designed (mostly by my DH), and built by me. Features a small dog run sitting on top of an old door. I covered all sides with screen mess (to keep the pine shavings inside). Then I zip screwed some old shelving units to the door base and used tie straps to attach to the run. This gives it rigidity as well as extra security (in case I use it outside when they are older). I can easily remove just the dog run part by cutting the tie straps for portability. They have plenty of growing room, easy to clean and provide new food and water.
