    Describe 'Small Grower Pen' here

    Small grower pen I threw together to get the chicks outside in the wonderful weather we have been having here in central Texas. Nothing special, and all in all prob cost me less then $50. They won't be using this for but another month or so, they are growing so quick! Just something to get them out of the brooder in the garage for a little while. Currently waiting for blueprints in the mail for the real coop. It will be 4x8, hoping to keep my 8 hens, with possibility of adding up to two more. Hope y'all like!

    Nice little outdoor area. I am concerned that you used chicken wire to cover it. Predators can rip through chicken wire pretty easily. I guess as long as you are outside with them the whole time they are in this pen, they should be ok.
    It would have been nice to have more details, such as the dimensions, or how you built it.

    I like that you stated that this was very temporary, just for a month or so.

    What a cute little pen! The article page would have been better though with more details on how to make this.
