    I spent the last 2 days building a grown out pen for the little ones to big for indoors, too small for the breeding pens. It is made using parts from a shipping crate, 2x2 studs, 1 inch plywood and wire mesh.

    I added a feeding station, roosting bar, and tiny house to keep them warm in the winter

    Doors on each side for easy cleaning an access to the birds

    LOVE it! I am thinking about building something to this extent as a grow out pen for my serama and silkies. What are the dimensions?
