    Nice!! I like your run, even though it's basic. Do you think you could show some more pictures? I need ideas because the run that we have will be too small when we get more fuzzbutts!

    Basic is good! I can always go fancy later!

    I think it looks real nice and I love the landscape around your coop.

    Good job!

    Well wings, I already had the plastic shed, but originally spent about $300 on it a few years back.

    I splurged and spent about $1200 on the cut outs on the shed including the sliding pop door to the run and sturdy building of the frame of the run since I couldn't do it, I let a professional and a friend that needed the work do it. The money was a gift from my Dad, since he is 95 yrs old and can't do much with it, he decided to gives his seven kids a chunk to play with. [​IMG]

    Also, it was totally worth it, did you ever mess around with a roll of chicken wire? [​IMG] [​IMG] Let the guy you're paying do it.

    Sorry, maybe I didn't word it right, the whole thing with labor and materials cost me $1,200. I can't build that kinda stuff, I had a friend who is a professional do it. [​IMG] I also want it to last a long time.

    What a nice run and lovely jungle-like yard, perfect place to have a few birds running around. Do I see rhododendrons?
