Or have I gone COMPLETELY over the edge, even by BYC standards ?? For what it's worth (in terms of my sanity) it only cost us $10 total, because was made out of an old computer desk, an old baby gate, and other odds & ends we had laying around. The only thing we actually PURCHASED was the wire mesh that we wrapped it with. That is my Chic-a-Holic 4 yr old DD Sami, underneath... she would sleep there if I allowed it!!! Oh, and I DO plan on phasing them to downstairs gameroom when bigger/messier, then outside when it gets warm... Don't tell my daughters! Anyway, they are definitely the center of attention in this house, are going to be the "most socialized" chickens EVER!!!
