    I have been on this great site for a couple of months now just trying to educate myself as much as possible. I have learned so much already but I am soooo nervous. I guess it's like being a mom of people, I haven't even gotten them yet and I am worried I won't do everything right!:/ I am getting 4 Plymouth Rocks and 2 Buff Orps on Thursday. Do you think their place looks ok? Any tips or feedback would be appreciated!
    I look forward to being a part of this awesome community!

    I would put cardboard around the sides, so the chicks don't fall out or get stuck in the wire openings. It will also help prevent drafts.

    I did, you just can't see it very well in the pic. Look toward the back of the cage and you can see it better.
