    It's so exciting, isn't it? Enjoy the thrill now, because you may get stressed about the move (if it's their first time in a coop). [​IMG]

    Here are a few pictures. It still needs painted to match all our barns (red with white trim). I'm not worried about anything getting in there to them because my dogs guard my chickens, I never lose any til they go broody wayyyy up in the woods where the dogs can't watch them or in our hay barn where the dogs can't get in to kill coons. So, this is just a little cage to keep them in so they don't get lost or get picked on by my big birds, when they are old and big enough they will graduate to the big chicken, pig, goat, sheep, and calf barn! Then when all my babies grow up and I decide who I'm keeping I can use it as a breeder pen!

    Could you explain a bit more about those "feeder blocks?" Are those just split concrete blocks? And why are you using those, as well as how.... Thanks!!

    Yea, I'm trying to find something else to use, they throw the feed out with these or I might make it so they can stick their head through to eat out of these. Yes, they are some split concrete blocks. They worked much better when they were in their big brooder (large dog crate) with these on the outside (they could just stick their head through and eat).
