    I am looking for some designs for fold away breeding pens. I have 2 buildings one with 2 heavy breeds and one for my Mediterranean breeds. About 12 weeks a year I will need breeding pens but want them folded up and out of the way the rest of the time. I was thinking of mounting panels to the walls via hinges so they could be folded flat against the wall when not in use. I am not having much luck finding anything like this on BYC. Anyone have a link to plans and or pictures of something like this?

    Could you use folding metal wire dog crates?
    Could you use chicken wire stapled to lengths of wood at two ends as a partition wall so you could roll it up when not in use?

    A pic of where you want them to go might generate more ideas.
