12. Summer Residence

While Dad is away...

I had to take measures into my own hands since the builder is trekking in Alaska and the chicks -now more like chickens- are quickly outgrowing their kiddie pool indoor home.

I started with an old baby crib.

But the chicks squeezed out through the slats, so I attached the Macaw's seldom used outdoor cage turned on its side, creating a daytime pen.

I fixed 1/2" hardware cloth around the crib for protection.

So far the girls enjoy the sun, wind, grass, dirt and bugs very much!
