    [​IMG] This is our solution to the babies getting harassed by our juvenile roo. We took a dog kennel and put it in the chicken house. Now they can socialize with the pullets and be safe until they get used to each other.

    Nice!
    Wants to see more pics of two story attributes inside.

    You can fashion a chick door in that crate so the chicks can wander with the biggers and still have a safe haven.

    Soon after this pic, I removed crate door and dropped fences section down lower,
    bending up a corner for chick egress.
