I have 30 chicks coming by mail in one week and I figured I would just find a livestock water tank or maybe a large cardboard box. The problem was a livestock tank used (and very used) were still quite expensive and the cardboard box was pretty flimsy and not re-usable. So, my lovely husband offered up the idea to use some of the pallets that we have been getting for the past two weekends and make our own re-usable baby chick (poultry) pen. Yea! Great idea. Fortunately for me, he loves to build stuff! Yes, Kristopher, you love to build stuff...all summer long :) The size is 2'8" X 4'4" X 2'8". I will put a strip of cardboard in the middle while my 30 chicks need the extra warmth and after a week or two will open it all up to them. Check out the pics below to see the process!
