    we finally had a decent weekend and started laying out the coop. the coop itself is going to be 16x8 and tall enough for me to get in with a 24 x16 ft run(that can be expanded easily if needed) we started digging the critter ditch it's a ft deep and it's going to have all sorts of surprises in it and will have fencing over that and then covered up and i'm going to put landscape fabric on top of the trench and maybe a few concrete blocks with flowers in them to make it pretty and some type of netting or wire over the top to keep cats and flying critters out and hopefully all this will keep all the critters out [​IMG] and if something digs under/thru all that then it deserves a chicken
