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.
