Nice setup! I like the wire as you don't have to clean them out so often. Do you have to protect them more from draughts though?Here's one of mine. I usually raise mine on the ground but these I decided to put on wire.

I'm in South Central Texas, for us, cold is freezing 30°F. This winter it got down to 24°F and we had snow this year. No, I didn't put anything around the pen to keep the wind off them but I did put hay in the pen for a little protection from the wind. This pen about 5' to the floor from the ground. It's 8' in length, divided into 2 sides, so it's 4' x 3' by 16" high each half.Nice setup! I like the wire as you don't have to clean them out so often.
