    here is mine! I have four chickens, this is how the coop works......
    The chickens get to free range all day when I am home, all around my yard and the yard next to us. When I am NOT home they are allowed into their big run and their small run through a small door that I leave open during the day. Inside the small run they have their heated waterer, layer pellets, and a few treats. In their big run is where the scratch, and most of the treats go. This encourages them to use both runs. At night I lock them into their small run. (very secure) Right now they spend all day in their runs useing their covered run for protection, they only go into their hen house when they need to lay eggs or go to roost.
    Small run is 4 by 8 ft
    and big run is around 140 square ft

    The run is about 10 feet wide, 8 foot long and around 7 feet tall. It backs up to the actual coop with a sliding door (rope/pulley setup). The coop is 10 foot wide by about 5 feet long with nesting boxes and roosting perches. I have 10 total. They seem to like it......
