    I recently completed my grow out pen for my 2 month old RIR's and Delawares. I'll use this as my intermediate pen between chicks and adults.

    I built a feeding pavilion since there wasn't enough room in the coop for a feeder

    Looks great! I would suggest hanging your feeder chest height for the birds and also adding or making the roof a little lower. That just depends of you have blowing rain. Great run for the birds! The coop looks a little small to accommodate the 15-16 birds I see in the last picture. I would recommend a larger coop especially if it get hot in your area.

    Everything seems to work perfectly just as it is. It's a temporary pen for the inbetweens. They'll be graduating to the big pens in a month or so.

    This is great! We have been talking about a Bigger kid pen. We have our feed house brooder and then we have a pen for once they graduate the brooder but they need something for when they are about 2-3 months until they start layiing. Those bigger babies pick on the little ones. This is an excellent idea!
