    In the continuance of my unhealthy obsession with my chickens, and my propensity to build things when I am bored, I built an integration/segragation pen. I put my meat birds in there.

    And everyone wanted to see the new folks.

    I'll use it as a place to keep sick birds, keep broody hens, and start batches of chicks as well.

    Very nice new project! I love your coop too! Do you have other pics of the coop and could you tell me the size?
    Thank you!

    Thanks so much! That's my ideal coop and run - at least today it is! I change my mind about every other week. LOL!

    Dogfish, you are totally inspiring. Hubby tries to block my clicking on any new thread you post! (Just kidding.) Since I live near you, do you hire out? [​IMG]

    And, do you buy your materials, or do you "Rube Goldberg" your creations from scraps around the farmstead?
