I’m not sure why they call them that. Maybe I should figure out a wheel system for it.
So, I bought a roll of [easyazon_link identifier=”B006GIWQXE” locale=”CA” tag=”chathetop0f-20″]chicken wire[/easyazon_link] and four [easyazon_link identifier=”B00LGKN6E0″ locale=”CA” tag=”chathetop0f-20″]hinges[/easyazon_link] at the hardware store, but everything else in this contraption was free from either scrap piles in the bush or the Share Shed.
All together it cost about $35 with taxes and everything, so that’s definitely affordable enough. I just designed it in my head, thinking of what I had on hand.
I just realized that I forgot to put a door on the outside to change food and water.
Look at my fancy walkway opening system. I hope it works alright when chickens are in there. For all I know, they love to peck [easyazon_link identifier=”B00DCCO1DK” locale=”CA” tag=”chathetop0f-20″]string[/easyazon_link].
These are where they will eventually lay eggs this fall. I hope. I have to figure out how to arrange nesting. Do they need their own boxes, or will they just kind of build a cluster of nest and share it.
I don’t know how they act in the wild, so these are things I need to Google.
