I think they came out ok ... so decided to share. We had no prior chicken experience. Husband is a stockbroker, me a housewife ... but we put our ideas to work. The coop is too narrow (lesson learned...go by my instincts not my husbands) but only for humans, the chickens are fine. I will focus on the Run. No formal plans ... just what I had in mind as an idea... We used Home Depot picket fencing turned upside down and buried the pointed ends in the round (approx 8" below ground) ... stapled 1/4 inch hardware wire on the inside of the fencing ... 1/2-inch PVC pipes for the sides and framing of the top .... green shade cloth secured with nylon monofilament (handsewn aLOT to keep it secure for our Santa Ana winds).... and finally the area between the shade cloth and the of the fencing is heavy duty bird netting. They get lots of sun through the sides of the fence and the bird netting. The shade cloth keeps it cool for the 90-100 degree days we get regularly in the summer.
