    Okay how high should my outside run be? It will be covered, but it will be permandent on the side of the coop. My DH thinks it should only be like 3ft tall and I would like at least 6, but I would deal with 5. I want to be able to get in and rake it out. We like to let our chickens out to roam when we are outside. Help us decide what would be best, we are trying to make it cheap, but I want it nice also.

    AT LEAST 5'. You will be sorry if it is under that since cleaning and everything else is near impossible if shorter than that.

    I agree, you'll regret it if you make it too short for you to stand up in.

    YAY at least 5 feet. Well if you are taller then that, then make it a couple inches over your height. [​IMG] Good luck, I know what it is to fight over a coop, Just got through doing that 2 weekends ago.
