    Here are some pictures of a small coop I made for a friend of mine,
    currently in use as my temporary grow out pen.
    It's made from an old saw horse I found on a garbage pile of a construction site:

    and pieces of left over wood, tar paper and chicken wire.
    I finished it with some old woodshingles from a demolished house.
    [​IMG]
    I raised it a few feet for predators and its closable with a pull string pop door.
    I ran out of chicken wire, but ideally I'd make the area underneath the coop
    part of the run.

    It can open on the side for easy cleaning

    I have been using sand for the last year, it keeps everything pretty clean in this climate.

    I just scoop the poop out in the morning.

    Nest box made from an old speaker box. Its for future use.

    When it rains or when its too sunny I put some tatch on the run.
