    Hi,

    We will be building a run for our new chicks soon and I need some ideas on what we will need. We will have 10 or less chickens in the area. We will also be moving some around daily in a Forsham inspired tractor.

    We have the Lowes playhouse built (it's not totally finished yet) and out in the area where they will be. Can you all post pictures of your run areas as some help for me please?

    Thank you if you can help.

    Here's pix of our cattle panel hoop run. It was a bit pricey, building this way but it has proven to be a very secure and predator-proof run, so far...[​IMG]

    Hope this helps!

    40'x50' chain link fence, 6' tall. There's chicken wire along the outside bottom. Gamebird netting on top:
