    Hi, I'm Missi from Pride, La. I've been involved with chickens since 09' and have enjoyed every minute of it. Since I've started I've enlarged my coop, added 2 grow out sections on it and have gone from having a few to having a whole lot!! It's just so addicting!!
    This is the coop/run when we started.
    The coop is 16ft x 5ft and the run is 16ft x 16ft.

    This is after one of the additions.
    We added a 8ft x 8ft "nursery" section. The coop is 4ft x 4ft.
    This is after we added to the run.
    We added 16ft x 16ft to it.
    Then I added another grown out section to it!
    I added another 8ft x 8ft section to it.
    I think we're done for now! [​IMG]
    Ahhhh.... Never say never!! [​IMG]
    So after I almost had my run structure completly colapsed from trying to cover it with a tarp and forgetting to cut slits in it we had to fix it. And in doing so I was able to seperate one section into 2 so I now have 3 complete seperate sections to house my different breeds!!

    This is how nice it was when we covered it. Made such a difference in there to help with the 100+ temps we were having.


    It was a total mess.

    We went in an braced it and bought shade cloths from Ace Hardware to help with the heat!

    Had to make a new coop for them.
    And here it is completed!! NOW I think we're finished until we build out new coop!! [​IMG]

      I think it's more that a bit jumbled!! I only added to it like 4-5 times!! It worked for me till we tore it down. To each his own. Some people are just not lucky enough to have the room to build a big ole coop and be able to add to it and have as many chicken as they want!! ;p
