    I need to put up a run by my second coop and, since the ground there makes it impossible to put in posts, I plan to make a hoop run from cattle panels. My question is: How do you attach the wooden parts (door and end frame) to the panels? I need to get this up this weekend if possible (the chicks are overrunning the house!) so I hope the answer is easy!
    Thanks!

    Chookaholic had a great hoop run/coop- see his pics.
    I think you would attach with screws and large washers?

    I used two by fours and sandwiched them together with the cattle panels in between the two... Worked really well.. Dont even try staples the whole thing will fall apart( trust me I know [​IMG] )

    Wow Marty. You do mean permanent!

    We did a couple hoop coops, the ends are a pain. but we did not go quite as permanent as Marty, lol. I will try to figure out how to post picts later.
