    its a 18ft X 11ft run with a 9LX5WX5H coop. it has three nesting boxes and in an interior feeder and water. The run has wire floor 6 inches under all the dirt and sand as well as double wire all around the entire run. We have had several attempts already from critters trying to breach the run and have all failed (yay). The girls are now 8 weeks old and doing very well.

    Great coop. How do you clean it?

    cleaning is quite easy. The run is bottom layered sand and easily raked once a week. The coop has pine shaving bedding and the coop has a large (4'x3') access door on the side to allow easy access for cleaning. The door is weather sealed for air tightness to protect the girls from any unwanted drafts or uninvited guests.

    That is a great coop and run. So what type of predators are you dealing with? Looks like your neighbors are close, so you must be in a fairly residential area?

    Love your Buff Orps!
