Okay my 6 chicks are getting big! They are outside in their coop, which is supposed to be fine for 6 full grown chickens, it has a nesting area at top, and ramp to go to bottom...I think the run is 10'x3'....anyway, we were building a fenced area that is 12x12' for them to run around in, but got stuck because we don't really know how we'll do a top...so I was thinking a chain link dog kennel would be perfect....because I can buy a shade/sun cover for it, so they can't fly out and to protect them from predators...what does everyone think? Also, if anyone uses 1 or knows where I can get them at a good price, let me know. I've been searching around. I want one that is at least 10'x10', preferably bigger though! THANKS GUYS! Oh yeah and for anyone that seen my other post, I figured out, I have 2 Rhode Island Reds, 2 Pearl White Leghorns, and the other 2 are either Barred Rocks or Black Australorps-we'll see when their bigger! Their getting SO big! They love earthworms, and when a mosquito or fly flys by, they try to run around and catch them!
