    I am making a coop and run for my new additions. It is going to be 6X6 and 3-4ft high.

    the run is either going to be 15x8 ot50x20. The 50x20 run would be divided into two areas and would alternate which area they had access to every few days.

    This post will be the construction of the coop and run. I will be taking pictures along the way to show what I've done. This is my first coop building so bare with me :)

    I used wood left over from the coop my husband build last summer to make one side today. I cut 8 36" pieces. 4 pieces make a square or panel. then I screw the two panels together. Or you could just do 72" pieces. I have one side done. Will have to buy more wood and screws tomorrow. Pictures will be uploaded tomorrow.

    Here are the plans for the coop and the nesting boxes. I plan on having a flat roof with hinges that lifts up as it will only be 3ft tall. So easier to clean. Will have an outdoor egg collection door also.
