    Ok this is something I built and used last year as a broody box, and it worked great. I'm thinking about using it to house three bantams, medium sized ones about the size of a Hamburg or Leghorn.

    It's 2 feet wide, 3 feet long and 2 feet high.

    So is it possible, they'll either have a two story run (under the house too) or an enclosure.

    Thanks

    Well if somebody were selling it on Craigslist it would house 8 [​IMG] but IMHO it seems a little small. Bumping your post for more input.

    Quote:Too true, I had a bantam and three chicks in it last year...it is a bit pokey. I'm thinking of removing the floor and adding some sides, so it'll be a regular square house with a pitched roof
