    mine is made out of hog pannels. we started out with 4 pannels and but now probaly have at least 10. we also have a nice wooden hut and a old horse/cattle tank on its side for shelter and for locking up at night. we r looking to put chicken wire floor on the wooden hut nothing can dig under and get in.

    we have the largest size of kitty pool (the huge ones). we have 2 food dishes and another small water pan so everyone can eat and drink without being beat up. during hatching season we keep some small plastic barrels on there side (with a few larger ones for geese). we have finnaly got some greenery in there that the ducks won't eat! we r looking to expand our pen so some grass grows in it. we would like to grow a cherry tree or a grape arbor in there for shade and then the fruits small enough for them to eat windfall.

    Here is the one we built for my two runners. 8'x8'x3'. Should have made it a bit taller though! Plan on adding to the roof so we can stand up in it at least! When we do we will also put on roofing panels for better shelter. The tarp is temporary for now but does the job. A really gritty sand in the bottom over gravel and old dog house to bed down in. Chicken wire on the inside, and welded wire on the outside. The chicken wire goes down 1 foot in the ground under the sand and gravel.

    oh? This whole time I thought they were!? Are you sure?

    My boyfriend couldn't remember what the co-op told him they were. I did some research on my own and thought that they had a lot of runner features, like the legs that were further back so they stand up straighter when they walk or I should say run. They don't fly at all. They actually to run around a lot. they have wide flat beaks and both now have a geen color.
