    I've had two sick chicks in the 1 1/2 months I've been dealing with them and had nowhere to isolate them from the others. So 2 days ago I built this little "Chicken Clinic" for my next sick chick. It took about 4 hours to build and cost $25 for the wire and hinges( I had the 2x4 and tin laying around). Its 3x4 ft. Now I won't have to keep bumming a cage off my friends when I need to isolate a chick.

    Great job! Do you have any more pictures of it? I need to build something like this so would be interested in how you did it. I have lots of scrap wood and metal roofing pieces.
