    I just bought 2 Nigerian Dwarf doelings in December. They were born November 1st. Right now they are in my Brooder house which is 4 x 8 with a big chicken pop door. House is great. Fencing is another matter entirely. The house has a 6 x 10 dog kennel attached. I installed some old fencing around the coop and run for a quick pasture before the ground froze in December. Two days and they figured out how to walk right through the fence! So then I doubled up the fencing to cover the bigger holes. 3 days and then today I saw them jump right over it. The fence is 5 ft high and they hopped over like it was jumping over a tin can. Any info you get I need. For now, they will have to be in the dog kennel. We have 3 ft of snow and there is no way I can dig out until spring.
