So, never doing this before I set out to build a chicken coop and run. I chose to use a corner in my gardening shed. The run would be between the shed and the neighbors fence. Before I began I did my research, thus finding this great site. What started out as "no big deal" is now consuming my every weekend and I simply can't get enough. It a inexpensive way to be creative and learn. I never thought owning chickens would be so rewarding.
