    I think I googled pet chicken? To get this site, but its been a long time ago.
    We also hand built our two chicken coops. They each are large enough to hold 24 birds but our girls are spoiled. 6 of the older flock sleep in one and the remaining birds sleep in the other. Each coop has a built it protected run way to a 40’ x 60’ play pen with self watering system. The play pen is encased with steel and hardwire mesh.
    After losing 4 birds to a bobcat last year I don’t take anymore chances.
    The chickens are allowed to free range when we are home.
