    Here is a picture of two of my three breeding pens before they were loaded up and brought to my house. They are each 4'x4' and they will be inside a larger run. I will be able to let groups out into the run to free range. These are just for housing during breeding. I am so pleased with the job Robert at CustomBuiltShelters.com did for me. I am going to water-seal them on Friday and then move them into place. Will post pics when I get them set up.

    This is the slide out deep litter box.

    Here is a pic of two of them in the run. I can't put the third in until I finish water-sealing them. I am so excited. Pics are courtesy of Robert!

    Quote:No paint, just weather- seal. I am trying to keep everything out back very neutral. It blends in better with our landscaping. We only have a half acre lot and I don't want it screaming out "farm" to the neighbors.
