    Picked up a few steals... some decent sized for older birds and some for moving the 2-3 week olds birds (I have my 2 week old meat birds with a MHP in one now)
    Built two brooder boxes as well!

    (The big run missing the middle panels is 7x13 and had to be taken apart to transport... we forgot the middle and I had to go back- it’s going to be my bachelor pad and we will attach a coop at the end for them even though it has a roof)

    The coop we are building the run currently is very heavy and 4x4 so not huge but will work for a possibly my bantams..

    Also building 2 attached 5x8 coops with runs on either side!

    I have 3 7 week old silkies in the little brown coop (the tiny one next to the red tractor one with wheels)

    Meaning?
    The roosters will move into the back of my barn where there is a 12x14 aviary/grow out pen. I think what they have is a super set up for 10 months out of the year.

    I deal with winter for horses... I’m not real concerned about winter... I have a barn.

    OH LOL
    The little coops are only for 2-8 week old babies and will sit empty the rest of the year so probably by September will be empty til April again.
