    Hi!

    I hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful holiday weekend. Our two week old chicks were quickly outgrowing their rubbermaid tote, so we decided to build something that will work for them for as long as we need/want to keep them inside. The best part is my husband got to take some really good lumber from work that used to be pallets. Worked out great - we used scrap lumber for the rest and the only thing we needed to buy was the hardware cloth. The chicks are loving all of their space and since they are now in our living room [​IMG] we get to see much more of them. It's also helping our dogs to get used to them. Im so proud of my hubby's handywork I just had to show it off so here it is!

    What a Eggcelent Job. [​IMG] I am sure the little guys will enjoy their home and of course as you get MORE chickens [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] you will have a place for them.
