    so this done, we got the chickens and put them in with a little divider wall: below

    Baco met the chicks.

    they got bigger, and we kept putting off making our chicken run due to: life

    so we made a little outdoor enclosure for them and put them outside every day.

    they got bigger and bigger....

    watering system, totally failed. the nipples were cheap from china and this was taken down even after four attempts.

    so we dug the run area up.
    [​IMG]
    quite a dig.

    there are actually gutters(fabric wrapped sand) running under the 2x12 in the ground, so that they do not rot as much as possible. the gutters drain the water away (and have large amounts of stones wrapped in fabric to fill the run on the lower side to guide water to the gutters)

    Great looking coop. I really like the scallop edge you put in. What did you insulate it with?

    coop is fully insulated as this is canada. and the mesh we got two rolls costs 180$ per roll.

    but our Coop & Run cost 250$ in total... due to being frugal. hehe
