    Welcome!!!!! [​IMG] [​IMG]
    You have a great coop and run going there, nice chickens and garden too. [​IMG] When you get a chance, will you post pictures of the inside of your too? Also, what is the top you used on your run, I've got to enclose 2 runs and am getting all the info I can on what everyone's using and what works best for them.
    Thanks!

    Looks like you got some of them working now... Do you have a photobucket or shutterfly account? That is what I use to post photos on message board. The accounts are free. and they work really well once you get the hang of it.

    You did a great job on the coop!! Looks like you have lots of wide open spaces there!!

    Hi there![​IMG]

    I'm replying now to answer your question about what I used on the top of the run. I bought 2 large heavy-duty tarps from Tractor Supply store. Then I stretched them over the 2X4 posts and used a type of rope to tie the tarp to the fence and posts.

    Good luck with your getting your chickens and making your coup & run! If you have any more questions just ask, and I'll do my best to help with an answer.

    Have a great day!'

    bet regards,
    Omran.

    P.S. we have 4 cats too; one of them is very interested in the chickens. he goes down everyday -so far- to set next to the pen and watch them; they are looking at him too. it's funny to watch! and it's even funnier that our other 3 cats are afraid of the chickens.

    Hey everyone!

    Thanks for the nice comments and also the tips on shutterfly.com and photobucket.com for posting the photos. I don't know much about them, but I think my wife can help me because she said she has a shutterfly account. Thanks again.

    take care,
    Omran.[​IMG]

    Very nice! I love the covered run and especially like that you've put some chairs out there. Chicken watching is one of my favourite things to do. [​IMG]
