    Need more chickens ASAP. So, I went with this. Can't figure out how to attach the run to the coop ? Or attach the back on it ? It's gonna be three sided. [​IMG]

    When I finish the end of arches I just cut rectangular pieces and let them stick out.

    Pictures of wire are hard to see in photos, but with the cardboard on the ends in this picture maybe you can see what I'm trying to say.
    Since you run is rectangular just finish the run side towards the coop with fencing, cover the ends of the arch with rectangular pieces of fencing and cut openings for the chicken to move threw and wire the arch and the run together.

    Just remember that were you have cut wire you must either file off all sharp edges or cover the exposed end. An injured chicken is a picked on chicken.
