    Well after I dont know how many weekends and some vacation time in between I finally finished the run today. All the wire is up and cemented into the ground. The door to the run, which I thought Id have a heck of a time with, turned out to be pretty easy. I placed the door there so it can be switched to the other end of the run since I have a feeling I will be removing a wall of the house and adding on someday soon.

    Of course after I finished putting down the cement I sat and admired my handy work. Looking up at the big oak tree about 20 feet away I notice a huge limb hanging over the run...dead as a doornail. Just one more thing to worry about. [​IMG]

    All in all I figure I put about $150 into the project. I got the house free and had to purchase one sheet of plywood, a bit of paint, hinges, hardware cloth a feeder and waterer.

    Id also like to thank everyone here for thier insight and pictures...there is no way I would have even known where to start without them.

    One last time I will set the link to the start to finish pictures. Tomorrow hopefully we get the girls.

    Looks great. How many chickens will you have? looks like about enough space for 4-6?
