    Still have to put up the aviary net and electric fence but...
    The lone Delaware cockerel is the only one my kids have name, they called
    him Six Piece Combo.

    Good idea on the netting and especially the electric. That is very pretty. I can only see three sides but I don't see where your ventilation is. They need LOTS of fresh air, much greater need for that than warmth. They should never be in a draft but fresh air is a must.
    This is a good resource: http://www.plamondon.com/

    Thanks all! Run is about 8 x 40 and offset where it attaches to the coop to make my door to the run.

    thanks for the link Farmer Bob. Both soffits are open but for 1\\2 " hardware cloth. Quite a bit of venting in and I'm still trying to source windows for extra summer venting.

    Looks good! Where do you find wire that tall? All I can find around here is 4 feet.
