Yeah, I ordered the newer version of the one I have in the other coop from Fleming. I really like the one I have.
The run will go East about 30 feet and then South to the south line fence. We will patch in a bit of fence between the coop and the existing chain link fence on the west side. I had to keep it off the fence in order to paint it, and that will give the chickens some west side area in winter to sun bathe and in summer to escape the morning sun.
A friend and I worked at a garage sale on the Fabulous Finds on HWY 99 this weekend. She has more stuff than you can imagine, so I sat with her this afternoon and mostly just kept her company. They were really busy. I was honestly quite surprised at how busy they were. Got nothing done on the coop, but I'll have some time to finish the primer tomorrow. I need to take advantage of DH to get the pop door installed and help cut some 1/4" underlayment for the walls. It is solid wood, just very thin, and it will take both of us to run it through the table saw. Measure twice, cut once, right? I can manages smaller pieces, but not full sheets of the stuff. There is a ton I can get done before Wayne gets to the windows, so I need to get started.
