    It used an old barn style dog house,with a divider for the nesting boxes.

    The dog house part worked out great. I used it for my 8 pullets until I got their coop built. I still use it on one side of my 10x10 dog run for chicks until they are big enough to join the main flock.

    The run itself was a bit too flimsy. I suggest a wooden frame.

    Sorry don't have any pics of mine
