One day in my class, I heard that we were getting chickens! So, once I heard that, I started to wonder where they would live for the first 16 weeks of their life. Where would they play? One night, I decided to build a 16 inch chicken coop mansion for the little furry fellows! I made it out of cardboard, lots and lots of duck tape and I spray painted it gold. I brought it to my school and asked my teacher if the chicks could live in it for a few weeks. He said we would need a heater in there as well as some water for them to drink, but we could use it as a play room for them instead. The chicks love their new mansion!
