    That's a niffty looking design. I'd need to beef up the top of the pen cause my grandkids would be on top before you could say "shoo". How many do you plan on putting in there? Chickens that is, not grandkids. [​IMG]

    Quote:I have 16 cornish x's in there today and they are about 6 weeks old today. It would be fantastic for about 8 larger breeds or 16 bantams. It could be altered to include nest boxes if there were 4-5 large hens or 6-8 bantam breeds.

    Thanks to all for the nice comments. We like it, and it looks cute in the yard.

    thats awesome,

    how cold does it get there on winter? i am in new england and woudl be concerned that i need to close off the windows if i did something like that for winter, also with the mesh floor.

    we are looking to only have 3-4 hens so i am planning on building something smaller so that we can move it too, but i like the basic design.
