I live in Southern CA and just have a small yard, but am still zoned for livestock. I built this handy-dandy little 2 story townhouse out of whatever I had laying around, or could find for free. The only thing I had to purchase was 50' of plastic chicken wire fencing. This is cheap in its finest! My Dad (may he rest in peace) always told me: "Never throw anything away, you never know when you might need it". Listen to your folks, cuz he was right! Thanks Dad! I also have a smaller day playpen with aluminum screening for my little babies to start in. The townhouse will be the perfect size for my Silver duckwing bantams after they hatch.....I have 8 eggs cooking, only 15 more days to go!
