I built the young-uns a little play pen for some fresh air.

    I was playing around this weekend and built some panels to make a play-pen for the little ones that are to small to go in the coop. I used hinges to hold the panels together so that all I will have to do is pull the pins off the hinges and I can easily store each panel when not in use. I can also make more panels and make this as large as I want it.

    I built this to keep under the trees during the day but I moved it out in the yard to take pics.

    What a neat idea! Be careful about your chicks jumping out and hawks flying in.

    Horse looks good, too!
