I'm thinking about making the run area bigger as it seems sort of confined to me. My chicks aren't free ranged - I could do some of that in the late afternoons with supervision. But we have too many hawks and dogs loose to let them run about all day unwatched. We do have a 4' fence with welded wire on it that surrounds our backyard. However I doubt the fence will matter much to the leghorns as they seem to fly without problems. I'd like to add to the run but I don't know what to do - it's already pretty well wired up. I have 1/2" hardware cloth at the lower 3' with 2x4 welded wire at the upper portion and over the top I have a mix of welded and hardware cloth. So how can I add to the run without undoing all that wiring? Suggestions? Should I leave it alone and build something else nearby for an extra run area? The overall dimensions are 11x15 for the run, but part of the run includes the 5x10 coop for overhead shade. We're thinking of having 10 hens. Here's a pic of the run.
