    My
    feed store has these for way cheaper, thinking of getting one to use as their main play area/living quarters for the winter, what do you think? I need it for a RIR, banty cochin, and 2-3 silkies-babies now. I really don't have time to build one, and their coop is literally falling over, being held up by a rope tied to the fence! (it's REALLY old...) I plan on putting sides on it and making part of it into a hutch for shelter until I can find time next spring to build them a good one.

    I think its ok for a little daytime run... I am in MI so maybe I am not the best answer giver on this, but I wouldn't want my coop on the ground like that in the winter. But I also have a lot of snow at time in the yard. I think If you don't have snow issues, it might be ok, but also a little more temping for the predators to get in and out?

    mahonri- 2 jobs and college classes full time, so unless you know of a way to add hours to the day??? LOL. I'm lucky if i get home before it's dark out most of the time.

    No snow here, no 'weather' really, we whine and complain at 1/2 inch of rain! and there's no real predators around here, middle of town. worst that comes through is a hawk.
