    That is really cute...well it probably cost more in workmanship than you could get. Maybe $19.99?

    It sure is cute! But I personally wouldn't get a chance to use such a design because it is cool enough here almost year round to need to keep the wind off the chicks so a enclosed box would work best for me.

    That is way cute! I'm a old hobby farm kid so I probably wouldn't buy it but I could see a newbie with small kids buying it. I looks like it could even be a butterfly house when not in chick use, snake, frogs or you name it. The nature coop. $19-$30. What is the size?

    It holds 2 OEGB with no problem. I use to go pick up birds or just to transport them

    How much is a small dog carrier? Cost wise I mean because if I was transporting my hens I would buy that it is so cute versus using a carrier. You could market it to breeders who show their birds. I really could see it as a Nature Coop for kids though. The ones in the stores are so cheap and small.

    That is DARLING!!!!!! I think $22.50 is a great price, especially since any small dog carrier (new) is about $35. I think the market for the bird-shower would be perfect! If I was showing my birds I would get that in a second! [​IMG]

    Cute! My FIL has one he made (not painted though) he uses for his cats, so it has several uses.
