    My friend came over today and we worked on my pen. He did most of the work as I'm not very handy. Bought materials from Lowes. My pen is a ten x six foot chain link dog pen. Bought 3 sheets of tin roofing 8 foot x 2 foot and chicken wire 3 ft x 150 feet. Wire over top and on the ground up the sides. Would be very tough for a preditor to get in. Half covered with tin and half only covered with chicken wire. I had had an idea about the type nesting boxes I wanted. My friend made a suggestion I liked better. always good to have more than one brain working on a project.
    Now I've got to start working on a brooder. I'm thinking about getting a large cardboard box from a furniture store. One about the size of a coffee table. Once I get it set up I will be ready to order my biddies.
    Here is a picture of my pen.
    Thanks, Bill[​IMG]
