    Check "craigslist" for a free shed or coop or buy one for cheap. A dog house or rabbit hutch will also suffice. Build a run with a wooden or metal frame and attach wire to it for a run.

    X2 on Craigslist and local freecycle papers, check out the BYC small coops section for some ideas on re-purposing other things like doghouses into chicken coops. Hello :frow and Welcome to BYC!

    [​IMG] can you get him down from the tree. Birds roosting there at night are easy pickens for owls etc.
