    I actually built something today! After a brief lesson in power tools from my dad, he and I built this 4x4x2 pen with a hinged top. I'll use it when the weather warms up to the 80's this weekend to give chickees some much needed outdoor supervised playtime.
    Also here is our brooder setup for our six buff orp pullets: Sparkles, Maybelline, Madame Cluck, Sunbeam, Daisy, and.....Daddy. (the latter is our 18 month old daughter's contribution to chick naming)

    I like the idea of the portable play yard. I actually told my DH we needed a play pen to do the same thing! He told me I was crazy! lol
    I just want to turn it upside down so the chicks can play in the grass and not run off...
