Now that I know what kind my chickies are, I need to get them out of the house! (When they are old enough, of course.) I have an old dog kennel that was here when we moved here that I would like to convert to a chicken home. I have read up on it a little, but am SO not the creative type. Help me branstorm????? So far my ideas are to make it taller somehow, and clear the tree branches and put something (deer net?) over the top. There is hotwire that lines the inside, but I am going to move it to the outside to keep my dogs out. (They haven't eaten anything yet, but they are big time chacers and I don't want to risk it.) For the shelter, I was thinking of "raising the roof" so to speak. And then of course insulating it. So, does this sound doable? I would like to get 2 or three more, would this be big enough? It's about 15x15. Any extra ideas or tips? Thanks!
