I made this pen to house my silkie hen and her chicks (one of which has died since the picture was taken ). The run measures 3 foot wide and 8 foot long and the house on the end is 3 foot wide and 2 foot deep. The house is elevated off the ground with 2x4s. The structure has a handle on the front and back so two people can easily move the pen to a fresh area. It has a door on the end of the run and a door to the house. The only wood I had to buy was the two 10 foot boards that run the entire length. The rest of the wood was salvaged and I already had the wire and sheet tin.
