    My babies stayed outside last night. Yes I worried about them!!


    I gotta finish their run, right now it's an old rabbit hutch with the bottom taken off. I lock them inside at night, and they still have their light.
    They reeeeeeally love being outside, and they seem smart enough to go in the house (with a light in it) on their own I came out to lock the door and they were all inside!

    It's supposed to rain/thunderstorm all the rest of this week, so I kinda doubt I'm gonna get much work done on their run [​IMG]

    Wow, what a nice little hutch. Is that something you made or did you purchase it somewhere?

    it is this doghouse it comes flat in a box and I assembled it. I actually DON'T really recommend it. You have to be pretty handy to assemble it, although it didn't take me very long. My review is first on the lowes page [​IMG]
    It should hold 4 hens pretty comfy.
