So we are covering the coop the guy gave us with the chickens with plywood. It was only chicken wire. It is like 5 x 5 , 4ft 7in tall in front and 3 1/2 feet tall in back. There is a man door on the front of the coop. Now my problem.... originally I was going to put the run coming right off the front of the coop, letting them come in and out of that door. WELL when I bought wood for the run today, and fencing, it made no sense to me to make the actual run as tall as I am! When the rolls of chicken wire were 40" tall, ( I think) So I changed the plan there and bought the wire and 2 x 4's for a run 20 feet long, and 5 feet wide and as tall as the roll of wire. NOW the problem. I can no longer attach the run to the front of the coop! Because the door is taller than that. I haven't got all the sides on the coop yet. So I am wondering, what if I put the back side of the coop up against my barn, have the door facing out and then run the run off the side of the coop, with just a little walk thru doorway cut out for the chickens to go in and out of. That also ruins my plans for putting the nesting boxes on the back wall and having a door that would lift up and latch so I could get eggs from the back. So I guess I could still put the nesting boxes on the back wall and just walk into the coop thru the man door to get the eggs. And hope I don't lose chickens that way. OR I could put them on the right side wall opposite the wall with the run, and still have my door to get the eggs. Put the roosts front to back instead of sideways. It's hard trying to remake someone else's design and make it work!
