    Our little chicks (6 Buff Orpingtons, 1 Golden Laced Wyandotte, and 1 Black Sex-link) were growing so fast, so we decided to build a bigger brooder to let them run around and fly as much as they wanted to without running into eachother! So, we came up with a design, gathered up the materials (thankfully we didn't have to buy anything!) Then put it together! They absolutely LOVE it!

    I had to bribe them with some oats!

    My little Buttercup actually ran to me when I called her! They are so happy!
