    I have 26 BOs and are just to big for the nursery. We have a romper room (chain link kennel) with no cover. What can I do to keep the kids dry. We may get a bunch of rain from Alex if we are lucky

    Well, you could put a tarp over the top, and just stick a pole up in the middle so it doesn't sag.....that's a very cheap way to put up a roof, but secure it well, or it'll flap and eventually tear to shreds.

    How big is the kennel? You could just put a cover over one end if it's real big........Some poultry netting would be good to keep the hawks away......
