    I figured I would post this for a good option to get your pullets out in your yard/contain/move/protect. It is fully enclosed in wire, and makes it easy for them to be transported to an outside area or simply put on grass and allow them to forage (they eat the grass between the wire space).

    Is this going to be kept inside an already fenced area or supervised by you??? I would be very worried about any kind of predator as that would not keep ANYTHING out.. Now if its in your fenced back yard then thats awesome..

    only problem is.. I used mesh which means 'medium-size' only. I have a bunch of 1-week old chicks, and I just take a few out in the yard at a time with me. The daughter loves watching them. The benefit of the enclosure is that it buys me enough time to run at a dog/cat if they come in my yard before **bite** -
