    Nice sized run...like that it's covered too, will be great for shade in summer and snow load in winter.

    Is top of coop open to run?

    Need a front on those nests so bedding and eggs don't get scratched out.
    Probably didn't need to cut them out, but just put a board(4-5" high) across front.

    Chicken wire is not predator proof.
