    This is from last year. On the left is a 2' x 2' x 4' rabbit cage that we built. Once the chicks got too big for it, I just added two, 2' x 2' rabbit cages to give them a seperate food/water area.

    Mine doesn't look like much compared to the rest, but it worked for us. It is about 6 feet around. We did have to add some netting once the girls learned to fly a little.

    Here is the piano brooder my husband made out of an old piano. They can stay downstairs or go upstairs.....and it has a small roost. We never throw anything away. We can roll in out in the day time and in at night if we need to. Our babies love it............ We love our musical chickens!
