    [​IMG] Finally got the Coop secure the other day and wanted to post the pics. We will be adding more interior wood panels before our cold temps hit, but it is now secure for the chicks. They've been out for 3 or 4 nights now and love the extra space they have.

    Nice looking set up but the run is not secure. You do know that chicken wire won't keep predators out, right? And the spacing of the other wire you're using is wide enough to allow critters to grab through to your birds.

    Quote:Thank you for noticing that, but my computer room/office is directly lined up with the run/coop and I can see it during daylight hours. Our chicks get locked in the coop before dark, and I don't let them out before 9am (I wake [​IMG] up just before 9am). If we go away from the house to shop or whatnaught I put them in the coop til we get back. They are my babies [​IMG] I will keep a close eye on them, I don't want them harmed. [​IMG]
