    A shed
    A tractor (would probably work best for you)
    A doghouse

    Nothing fancy.

    You can use smallish fruit crates or something for nest boxes, and a 2x4 for a roost. Feeders and waterers aren't too expensive at a feed store.
    If you decide to use a tractor, a run is part of it. If you're looking at an actual building like a shed or doghouse, you'll need to build a simple wire enclosure.
    Does that answer your questions?

    Do you have any materials hanging around? You would be amazed
    what you can find arounf the yard for free.

    The next step would be using pine strips and chicken wire but that
    would require a trip to Home Depot. Those wooden pallets work great.
    Are there any behind local stores?
