    Interesting City Coop!


    I'd put hardware cloth instead of chicken wire on the peaks and eaves.

    What's with the 'pit' in the run....does it collect water runoff?

    Thx. Yea, we ran out of $$ just wanted to get something up so we put chicken wire up there temporarily. The weather is fair up here so as soon as we finish the last wall of the run which has the door I will be letting them out during the day. The "pit" is just a staging area which will be filled with gravel, DE, and sand. Im planning on getting all of that done this weekend along with a more official vent or two.
