    My boyfriend is in the middle of building the cutest coop... we're calling it Chick Chalet. It looks just like a little chalet and yes, we're playing around with Chick Fillet. [​IMG]

    Anyway, we need to make a covered and predator proof run but can't quite figure out how to do it so that the coop's character doesn't get lost in the process. Any ideas? I'll try to get some photos on here, although, I haven't looked into how to post photos yet.

    oh, and I guess I should say, I'd "like" to be able to walk in there, or... is that not really important?

    if you have the cash you could make it as tall as you wanted. Then use aviary netting or poultry netting to cover the top.

    Quote:It is for me. This is an older pic and my run and coop are much more homey now.
    I spend a lot of time in there with my girls ... and Pierogi.
    Hardware cloth, skirted out to be predator proof. It aint 'cheep' though.
    It would help to know how you are set up for space ?
    Always go bigger!
