    I'd like to say thanks to all who have given me support and advice on these forums.
    Here are some pics of my setup. The coop I purchased from Roots, Coops and More here in Maine. It is a 4'x6' model.
    The run I built myself. Still need to add fencing, walk-in door and roof - which will be Tuftek corrugated paneling. The run is about 9'x6'.
    That plus the area under the coop (20" off ground) will give me about 78sqft +/- of run for 6 birds. I also plan on letting them free range come next Spring.
    The ground area was prepped with 1" stone then 1" minus gravel for drainage.
    You can still see the stone in the run area. I haven't added the 1" minus yet in that space.
    The dirt on the outside of the run and pathway is actually the 1" minus.
    I will be putting some sand on top of all...
    The whole setup is just in the woods off of my backyard about 50' from my house.
    On tho the pics:
