    I am planning to make some of these cages to put in my pasture because my barn is getting pretty full. I live in Louisiana so it doesn't get freezing here. I have tons of wire left over and was wondering if I built the cages in this link, would I be able to put wire on the sides and back? Would it be to drafty or cold?

    It's post number 3. I would put solid wooden floors and a galvanized roof with wire on the front, back, and sides. Does this sound good?

    Joe I use hutches similar to the ones in the link for when I have to put birds up for shows. I am in Middle, TN and it gets cold here but if I have to have someone in there while it is too cold I put hay down with shavings on top. I usually do not show when it is too cold.

    Good luck,
