    I made them out of both too.... however I like the wood better. I liked knowing that my pen wasn't going to be a kite and with high predation I wanted something more durable.

    I like wood for the same reason Jeff cited. A stiff wind and some of those PVC tractors will be gone if not well weighted down, plus we've got some strong raccoons here -- if I can lift it very easily so can they. [​IMG]
