    I keep mine in a 10x10 dog run, it has a 40GAL trough, and even some small trees lol i landscaped it a bit. I find dog runs are the cheapest method for pens.

    After that, you'd need a small wire fence, sheep/goat any type with a small opening. The only issue there is they are quite hard to cover, and are exposed to air preds.

    Mine are full flight but i have the run covered so they cannot get out. I also downed the wire with simple chicken wire, they are not in it overnight so i opted for this less expensive option since it's chain link based.
