    Finally happy with my coop - my girls seem pretty happy to. I have 7 and the run only is 90 square feet. I still need to add my plants around the outside but i'm done with the coop.

    I'm jealous. I'm only 1/2 way done. It looks nice.

    Looks nice, they're happy, sound like a win-win to me.
    Heck, I'm still drawing blueprints.

    Blueprints? I'm winging it, but I have a pretty good idea what I want. I think I may bust my $400 budget by a little bit though.

    That looks amazing!! I'm also in the half-done camp and super jealous. I thought 90 square feet with 7 hens was "enough" as long as they got some free range time? I have 5 hens and around 100 square feet, but plan to build a tractor to get them some time elsewhere (and help me keep the weeds down). Do you plan to let them out?
