    Hello I got 5 RIR's around may and here is my coop. It's just a simple 7x 10ft modded dog kennel. Any questions or ideas just post. I'm always interested in what others have to say.

    Hi and welcome to BYC from northern Michigan :D

    Wrap the bottom 2-3 feet of your run with hardware cloth - chicken wire will not keep out all predators.
