    My marans chicks needed a larger pen(there are a couple australorps and two mystery chicks in with them too) so Phil and I built this one in our back shed(roofed, open on 2 sides, pens on front, shed on back).

    I always love it when I move chicks to a larger pen. They just love having all that new room to move around in. At first these stayed kind of all in one corner but now they are all over the pen.
