My 4 chickens are now 7 weeks old and we still don't have a chicken run build for them. They are in their snaplock coop at night, Precision extension pen (1 now but will be 2 connected by tomorrow) during the day, and they get to play in the yard by me for an hour at dusk. But they are growing fast and I'm afraid DH will still be pondering exactly what he wants by the time the girls outgrown their daytime digs. While looking at Google Images on runs, I found http://www.chickencondos.com. At first DH rejected it completely. But now he is seriously considering it. We'd get the 6x8 with flat roof and the mesh predator protection for around the outside. We could add cinderblocks along the perimeter of the inside for good measure. Though DH will probably end up putting an electric fence around the outside for nighttime peace of mind. You can laugh all you want I don't want my chickens to get shocked even for the learning phase (don't worry, my DH gives me a hard time for this too) They will spend nights locked in their coop, days in their runs, and, again, free time outside with us and our dogs. It is a very big purchase and I just would like to hear from SOMEONE who has actual experience with this system. THe benefit is that once it arrives- presto -- the run is up and ready. And it could be moved if we want to change locations every-so-often. I saw one person (Erin?) asking about them but didn't see where anyone responded who knew of them in person. Thank you!
