    Theres all sorts of ridiculous things stacked around it, I need to make a skirt of wire for it for when the ground is uneven, so nothing can get in, and since the babies are still so little- out. Theres chickenwire all around the bottom, obviously, but under the bottom frame of wood critters might get in if theyre unattended.

    yay! Go me!

    Very good use of recycled materials. I am always looking for ways to reuse materials and keep the cost of my chicken habit under control. Great work I am sure your flcok will love their new space.

    I know, they do grow fast!

    They actually have a coop, the tractor was a started project abandoned when we ended up with more than we expected- thus the coop... but this works GREAT for the chicks!

    That looks great! I love to see habitats built using recycled materials. The youngins look happy in their new crib. [​IMG]
