    Here's my latest addition to my "Camp Critter".
    I have been building it on my own with no help from my husband. Other than him helping me carry something heavy, I have designed, measured, and built it all on my own. That's why things aren't totally perfect but I have learned a lot. I have installed hinges, used a circular saw, etc.
    This is a chicken run for about 3-4 chickens. Currently only housing two. It is 4 foot X 9 foot long with a house that is 4X3foot. The top opens up in two sections. I now need to add a chicken door which I have already figure out my plan.

    I have the tarp there because we are having a terribly cold winter and I cover them up each night. (0-15 degrees)
    That's cold for KY.

    I also built a pot belly pig corral with my dad's help! He used a level! LOL

    I've actually added another run but this is the only picture I have at the moment.
    The tall section on the left is my aviary for two fantail pigeons. Three silkie hens are in the middle and right section. I have a longer run added for them. I am hatching hopefully roosters for my hens due on 12 days. Two pigmy goats live in the pen in the back left.
