    Hi all! Getting ready to FINALLY get some chicks the beginning of April:) so, need to start building the "Fat Bottom Girls" house. However, I am starting from scratch and besides knowing I want an A frame, I have no ideas for design except, keep it simple. If you have an A frame, can you post your pics of it? There seems to be a lack of A frames in the gallery.
    I need ideas, kinda quick! Still have a little time though.

    I built an "A" frame with all recycled wood from a building we had collapse. In all it cost me $4 for the two latches to lock it up. It still needs a paint job once the weather warms up. We're also still doing a ton of yard work so once some more down trees are cut up and the pile of branches is cleaned up the run will be made larger. My chicks are a little over 2 weeks old now.

    Here is the outside view with the door open (just took the pic yestarday)
