So I bought this based on the 53" long measurement not thinking that would include the handles . So it's a hare smaller than I anticipated and I'm kind of regretting the purchase. It's the Ware Backyard Hutch. I was planning on using it for my 3 chicks as a grow out pen until they can mix with my 12 week old pullets. I chose this as I was going to put the entire thing in our "predator proof" run and like that they have somewhere to go in to sleep without me rounding them up and bringing them indoors. Would you keep 3 chicks in it until they are large enough to mix with the flock or is it just way too small? I can return it. The pen part is 30x20. I paid about 60 bucks with coupons and free shipping. Oops, meant to put this in the coops section.
