Here is our run during the winter months. Most days the chickens free range . The pop door locks up at night and my two little goats stay in the run, in the red box during the nights.

LOL) Never a dull moment around here. I keep busy crocheting, canning, painting, reading, tending to my fowl and dogs and most of all...
Dh added on to the back of the chicken house/coop with a turkey pen. He has one roost about 5 ft off the ground and the top one about 8-9 ft. off the ground. They love it!! He closed off the pop door seen in the lower left pic and made it come out of the run side of the house...the right of bottom pic. So they are separate from the chickens. Sometimes my six guineas like to sleep in the turkey pen, too. Turkeys free range during the daylight hours.
