    I am currently hatching out severel diff breeds of chicks, I am looking for an economal way to make a seperet pen for each breed. Looking at 4 to start with. I know I have read here before about hoop houses made from wire and tarps. Could anyone tell me where to see plans or show pics of yours? Also what type of wire did you use and is there a certain tarp you use?

    Thanks Kimberly

    ETA: Im in Kansas zone 5 will these be warm enough?
