    Hi All!

    I'm looking for some shade/shelter from rain for the girls when they are out in the pasture. We need a replacement for the truck and horse trailer that is now gone. They loved hanging out under there and we didn't lose any to hawks. Hope I haven't jinxed that by mentioning it. [​IMG]

    Last year someone named ChickensAreSweet posted (number 4830) a bunch of pictures but I can't get to them. I can't even highlight the links so I can paste them into the browser. So does anyone have a work around for that?

    Does anyone have any ideas on making them from pallets? . . . or plans for stick-built? . . . or anything really? We don't get much high wind and we have ways to deal with that.

    Love this forum! And the helpful people here!
