I'm looking to build a run for my girls. I have 7 red sexlinks and 2 silkies. We currently have a coop with a run that's 6x7. But I'm wonder Do they prefer more areas to travel? (Making long chicken tunnels OR do they prefer a run where they can all scratch together? Our original plan was to make a "range" area around their coop with a trap door so they could only "range" during the day[/IMG]. We were going to put metal stakes in the ground and hardware as fencing and cover. But now I've seen these chicken tunnels and we could make a pretty long one so they could travel. But of course the tunnels are smaller. I only plan to stand in my girls coop area the "range area is more for them. Here's a side pic of our coop area that girls have access too 24/7 . Sorry if I'm confusing. I hope you can catch my drift. Ask any questions for clarification.
