    I ended up putting in a second bolt, so it wouldn't twist around.

    I wondered about that ;-) Love the can piercings and Ah-hah moments like that when you find the right tool!

    Might want to raise it up so they don't poop and fling bedding into it.

    I would like to see the construction because I can't quite figure it out from the pics alone. Sometimes I have to put a weak chick in a cup to get them to stand more.... the ones that tend to lay down a lot or have the curled toes. This seems like a much nicer option than a cup!

    You can use a circle cake pan- higher sides. Or just hang it.
