    Rabbit hutch lik style (or buying one cheap on craigslist and renovating ) would be perfect for a pair of chickens with an added nest box on the side, and the top flipping up. Make the run as tall as the hutch and screen it in together. [​IMG]

    Maybe consider a re-used dog house? You can often find them to be quite affordable on CL. You could build a run or put the whole house up on legs and put the run underneath...

    Mine was a dog house. I bought it from C.L. for 35 dollars and remodeled it. If I had it to do over I would have done it like chuckzoo did his. I wanted a bigger run, but it turned out to be a lot more work than I anticipated.

    Thanks guys!

    Here is what my coop looks like now;

    I added the other section when they got ready to lay. The doors are interchangeable, in summer they have the hardware cloth.shadenet doors on the laying side and in winter I change them out for solid doors. The mist you see in front of the coop is my mister to keep the hens cool.

    I also have my "Range Rover";
