    if you put them in a big cardboard box for a temporary (like a few minutes) you could build a box for them like i did or you could buy a metal horse trough they are a bit expensive but it might work i suggest building some lumber and buying a box to keep indoors mine is in my kitchen or maybe a spare bedroom:jumpy
