    This was built in 1942 by my DH's grandfather. (the cement was dated) They used to raise hogs. Now it was mostly used for storage until I decided I needed guineas. Concrete walls and floor. The birds will survive any storms [​IMG]


    4' fence around one outside stall. It was covered until the keets got big

    The second stall that will be my brooder, I havnt put the side walls up yet. When I dont have chicks the two stalls will become one and I will move on the 3rd stall [​IMG]

    I just hope the chickens like it. I plan on putting nesting boxes along the far wall of the 2nd stall when they become one large area.

    At work they were going to burn some wooden shipping crates. I snagged them just in time, i think they will make good nesting boxes.
