    I have some serama eggs in the bator. *IF* I can get them to hatch [​IMG] i'll need to get some seperate housing for them. Not only because of the temperature requirements, but also because they're so tiny. I'm so not handy with a hammer. Anyone have any SIMPLE (like Fisher Price My First Coop) plans for a small house type thing? It'll have to be insulated, but i dont' think that's too hard. I'm going to attach a smallish covered run as well.

    Look on Craigslist for doghouses! They're generally cheap, and easily convertible. I have 2 standards in one. It would be perfect for Seramas!

    We've used old rabbit hutches for our Japanese Bantams (which are small, too). Check out the Local Sales Network or BestFarmBuys for your area. Lotsa good deals on both places.

    Hope this helps!

    How about going to a used furniture place and looking for old wooden chests, toy boxes etc. Sometimes friends can find or know where old wooden shipping crates are that get destroyed. These are box shaped with lids, also a possibility. If the eggs are in the bator, your have a little time.
