    Picking up a roo and built this out of some scrap wood I had laying around. Total build time 45 min. Figured my dog crate was a big chilly for the temps we have been having. Lid has spring loaded hinge and using a zip tie to close for now. I need a locking clip but didn't have one in my misc. jar of goodies

    Opposite side has the same amount of holes

    Just need to add some straw and rope handles on the side.

    Wow those came out big. Even after resizing. Sorry

    Thanks. I've built alot when younger growing up on my grandfather/uncles pheasant farm. They were much nicer though.
