    I've got 5 or 6 different breeds and trying to get eggs to incubate so I bought a roll of weld wire with 2"x4" holes and made 15'x4' for my breeding pens. I used old lumber from a yard fence that was remove. The wire was about $60 and made two pens out of one roll. If anyone is interested I'll post pics. Took about 2 hrs per unit to assemble.

    They are nothing fancy but I really like them. Two people can move them which will help with letting the birds graze. I've got to get some ply wood to make doors out of. Going to put next boxes on the door for easy access.

    I made two of those and would like two more just haven't got the time to do em as of yet. The only thing that scares me is the really cold windy weather. I really don't know how to do anything other than cover the whole end with tin and put a heat lamp in there
