Here's an updated pic of my coop and run. I still need to add the roof ( after I run the hardware cloth) and the window to the side 9f coop not showing. I'll have the run fenced today so we can at least bring out the chicks ( 4weeks) for some daily field trips to get used to being outside!

Looks good, curious about dimensions too.


Don't forget the anti-dig apron!
Good examples of anti-dig apron installation.
If rodents are prolific, burying the apron ~12" would be good.

I am planning on the apron definitely. The run is 18' by 10'.the coop sits 2.5' off the ground and has 6'×6' floor space. Its 6' on the high end down to 5' on the short side.
