    I'm new to this. I want to raise about 3 hens for laying. I want to build a large run for them. Can anyone help.

    The coops section of the website is a very good source for construction activities. I just built the "
    trictle's Coop​
    " with a modified design to increase the amount of chickens I can have in here.

    take a look at the medium to large coops and you might find your answer. I found it very helpful to buy a book on woodworking. It taught me how to measure and cut correctly as well as use the metal square
