Nest boxes will be below long roost bar (won't put them in until they hit about 4 months old). All-purpose construction sand in run and coop floor.
My girls are 4 weeks old - one each: Polish, Silkie, RIR, SLW. I'm going to move them in this weekend! I plan to lock them in the coop for a week, then give them access to the run.
It looks great! I would be proud to! We originally bought a coop with the attached from Amazon with the intention of adding to the back of it and expanding the run. But when we decided on putting it next to the mud room, doing that just didn't make sense so we took the run that came with the coop off and didn't use it at all. I regret buying it at all and wish I would have had the courage to just build the whole thing ourselves. As you can see from the pictures, we ended up making changes to the coop anyways (still need to get that wood painted green).
