Looking good!
I am a bit surprised the haven’t felt it needed cross-bracing (some struts at 45 degrees to add stability).
Probably less important without a roof (but I thought you were putting a roof on some of it??). Might be good to ask them.
I found some photos of cross bracing at the Chicken Palace that might help explain what I mean.

For now it's unroofed except for mesh, which is lightweight.

The chicken palace is wonderful!

The tradies keep saying they're building a chicken palace and I keep demurring because I've seen a real chicken palace, yours, and we're far short of that. I prefer Funrun.

It's looking fantastic MJ!!! The girls look like they're loving it too. :hugs
Thanks for saying so! I love it and I can't wait to set it up with the hens various toys. Tree stimps, little coop, bale of hay etc. Food and water. Tables for shade. And some new plants.
