    Thank you for the replies! I'll look for the pics! And, how often/long do you set them in there?

    I would only leave the chick in there for a few hours at a time. They can struggle to get out, and can get hurt, so keep an eye on them. Place food and water close enough to reach. Here are a bunch of homemade chairs and slings:

    A friend built this for my girls. Cathy fell off a truck on its way to the processing plant and broke her pelvis over a year ago, and she gets scrapes on her legs sometimes, so this helps get the pressure off. IMG_20180404_094635.jpg
