    Look at my very cheap recycled pen. only thing we had to pay for was the wire and the latches. A garden store gave these away to us, they get potted plants in them.. everything was free.....
    Its about 6ft tall, and 4ft wide...3ft deep...

    It looks really nice but what breed of chickens are you planning on keeping in it? I ask cause it seems like there's not much head room.

    We actually built this one for Quail, the top is going to be a brooder and the other 3 pens his breeding pens.
    One pen is currently holding 2 broody hens and 1 chic..


    The next one we build is the same hight but it only has 3 shelves so I plan on making it into pens for 3 pairs of OEGB.

    If I could get ahold of one of these, I'd actually start raising quail.

    she's got 25 of these things. I'll take pic's of what they looked like before we did anything to them. You can take one and use just the the parts off of it to make 2 complete pens.. Thinking of making a bunch up and saleing them I'd think they would be worth $50-$75 a pen.

    I can tell you right now that I would HAPPILY pay you $75 for one of those. My DH is an OTR trucker and isn't home much and I home school our children, take care of the critters, house, 5 acres, vehicles and whatever else may pop up, so the money spent is WELL WORTH it to me not to have to find time to build one myself!
