    I need something to put my chicks in when intergrating. I'm willing to spend under thirty dollars.

    I purchased several wire rabbit cages at our local Fleet Farm. The 3 ft by 3 ft was 29. (They have smaller depending on how many and what sizes (2 ft x 2 ft was 19). These have worked well for my broody hens hatching chicks and their first few weeks. Also for quarantining new pullets or for sick hens.

    Thank you. But I need to put four almost grown hens in there for intergrating, so I don't know if that would be big enough.
