    Funny story....my Shepherd/hound mix decided to jump the shortest part of the backyard fence last night to go chase something at the next door backyard (they do not keep it very clean and there is always critters running around at night). They only way we realized she was gone is because my black lab was barking like madness and since we didn't hear her we went out to investigate.

    So now I have to do something to make the fence taller....or....since the fence is right behind my coop, I could just make another small run on the other side of the coop and block access to the fence [​IMG]

    DW has approved the project and I go buy lumber tonight!!! woohooo! Lenght will be about 6' at the furthest from the coop and 2' @ the closest (the fence in @ an angle). It will probably be about 4' wide...


    Here is a pic of the fence the silly dog jumped (left of the woden fence)

    Here is a pic of the location of the coop..the extension run will be on the left)

    I knew it was a matter of time before she jumped the fence..this is her up our tree...she is over 6' up! lol

    More picture to come as soon as I'm done with the addition!
