    Well, I have been working so much I have not been able to make my large Chicken Run and coop. I have my chicken in a very small 10' x 10' temporary pen. No coop, but they do roost in the lower branches of the tree. I wanted them to clear it out around a stump and as you can see they did a great jub in about 3 weekd!

    I like the tree and bush ideas in a run it protects them from hawks.

    The tree was getting pretty big. I pruned it down to keep the top about 7' tall. It helped it to bush out.
