There is an auto feeder and auto waterer in the shed portion that sticks through the separating wall under the coop for them to access. All in all I doubt I have more than $500 in it. (I hope) I'm sure you could build something quite nice for less than 800 or so.

Wow that sounds like an awesome system!! I'm going to have to look into building something like that! $500 seems like a much better number too because most of the $800 was probably for something twice the size so a smaller one probably wouldn't cost as much which i forgot about so thanks smile.png i think at this point the biggest expense is probably going to be the hardware cloth for the run
