    There are a few folks on here who have done PVC type enclosures just for a short term solution. The problem: they aren't predator proof. I'm sure you don't want any animals eating your chicken before you do. What about a chain link dog fence as a second idea?

    Quote:PVC isnt the best. Make sure you get the thick PVC not the skinny pipes. Also make sure the roof is fixed if you do PVC. we did PVC untill i could find a dog kennel to use. [​IMG]
    Now its much much better, we spent about 75.00 making it and after every rain storm i have to go fix it. It falls apart. It works well for a temp home tho. Will prob put it inside and put my chicks next year in it.
