Hi everyone, DH and I are nearly finished with our coop. I put the primer on today, and will probably do most of the painting tomorrow. Phew! I can't wait to be done, and get my girls outside! Now that we're almost finished, neither of us are in the mood to build anything or do any more projects for a while. Thinking about putting in a run is almost too much right now. I was thinking that a dog kennel, slightly modified for predators, would be a good option. TSC sells a 10x10 kennel for $240. What do you all think of this idea? I know several of you use these...would love to hear your thoughts on whether they're working or not before I spend the money. Amy P.S. Even though we've had fun building our coop, it's cost way too much...we could have had a huge shed from Home Depot for roughly the same amount. Hence the "pre fab" run idea.
