This will be my first year bottle feeding. I don't have any kind of pen in barn for them yet. Was just going to build a temporary wood box for them to stay in for first couple weeks. What size box would you build?

A dog carrier is cheaper and works fine

We've used a pack and play in the house before. Only the first week or so.

These are the boxes we use. The top is vented sides and front. Front door slides up and locks for easy access to fawn. Has a slide out tray with rubber liner for easy cleaning of bedding. Has rollers for ease of moving. Painted to ensure easy disinfecting. We would be able to make these for anyone and ship them I assembled to save shipping or assembled via common carrier.

This year i bought the porta crate, xl, from PetSmart. Love them. They unzip from the side, end, or top. The screen is black so they don't try to go thru it and i dont have to cover with a towel or blanket. It is nice not having fawns jump out.
