I thought I'd share my coop and run pics since I know how much I benefited from seeing others when I was starting this process. Ultimately we opted for a pre-manufactured coop for time purposes (certainly not for budget reasons ). But the run was entirely created by us. Basic 2x4 construction. Carsiding and 2x12s for the shelter/shade. And a standard wooden screen door from the local hardware store. It doesn't look that big from the pics, but it's about 7x8. And the coolest part: the side closest to the house is right up against a window, so I can see them anytime I want from inside!!!! It's their first night out in the new digs. Hope they like it. Oh, and I have 5 Barred Rocks. You can see two of them on the ground in front of the coop just at the mid-line 2x4. They will be 5wks old Monday.
