    Working on drawing up a potential chicken coop design. Can anyone give me some input on anything I'm missing, whether this is feasible, etc? Also need to figure out how to get chickens from the coop into our run which is a 6' x 10' chainlink dog run.

    Just wondering if the north side is taller, then it may be easier for humans to access from that side instead of from the south side which seems to be shorter for roof slope...

    I would try to connect the run directly to the coop if possible. I have the ador automatic chicken door it works great. [email protected] . The ador door may help you out then you wouldn't have to have access to the door the chicken exit out of. I have seen a chicken tunnel If your handy maybe build or retro fit the door way to attach to the run.

    I can't quite see if you have the dimensions on your drawing, so I'm not too sure what the feasibility is. I would suggest make it with enough room for you to easily clean it. As for attaching it to the dog run, you can make tunnels out of wood/pcv and chicken wire/fencing. The could be long or short depending on how far away the pen is. Or if you want to move it to give them new areas. I haven't tried them yet, but if you do a Google image search for 'chicken tunnel' they look promising.
