    I like both! I wonder if the spacing on wire is larger on the bottom model then the top one? I like the look of the top one. Seems to have more head room then bottom one. But it doesn't say how tall the top model is?

    I wonder about the spacing too. You may have to add some hardware cloth to the inside for predator control and to keep the babies from escaping when they hatch.

    It also doesn't have a bottom, so predators would be able dig under and/or turn it over unless it is in a protected yard or coop.

    If I did get either of these they would be kept inside in the basement garage with shavings, we have fox problems.
