    I am going to be breeding silkies in the spring. I am trying to figure out how to go about their pens. THis will be inside of a small barn with runs outside for them. I need to use up less space as possible.Any suggestions will be great,[​IMG]

    How many pens will you be building, how much barn space do you have to work with, and how many birds do you plan to have per pen?

    I use some dog kennel panels and also permanent fencing, with calf hutches for the coops for some of my breeding pens.
