    How many chicks? It looks like it is barely big enough for 2 chickens. But for a freebie take it. You never know when you when a pen for one and you could cover it with wire on that 'front porch' part.

    I'd make that work in a heartbeat...I'm the queen of freecycle-recycle...lol. For chicks, that would be great as long as you give them plenty of pen space around it.
