ok I have 50 something birds all different ages several breeds mostly pure...all standard. right now I have a converted stall on the side of our barn (allowed electricity access) It is enclosed on all sides excluding a doorway which is open. Natural roosts hay bedding homade bin style and milk crate nests. \\ Surrounding this and also going behind the barn I have a really not well put up fence made of horse no climb wire about 4 1/2 ft tall. Their penned area is roughly 65x75 of fenced in area. They fly over when not clipped they slip under till I find the hole. I have a few no matter what I do they still get out and over. I have one fully enclosed pen area with a 8x8 covered shelter area for teenage chicks, new birds just whatever. I need a new coop, somehow split into two sections for two flocks. Somehow having a fence or run if you will outside for both areas. My barn stays wet inside not really useable for much but storage. BUT it has electricity but no big door in the front it is open like a big shop size entrance. Thought about buying bags of concrete and just having at putting a floor in it...barn is really big but then what if we were able to get a tractor someday then well there goes my coop. ok so I have a pastured area the birds free range everywhere right now it has field fence and chicken wire along the bottom but noooo my escape artists go where they please over and under and through it. I need to be able to contain them when I want to. Free ranging is great but not when they eat all my tomatos and berries and plums and zucchini ugghhhh!!! So I don't know how big or how to make big and split it and what to use to keep them in without killing my pocketbook. I must recycle and use what I have which isn't much. Don't mind buying some but can't afford fancy. Have enough left over from house roof to cover a real good sized coop top. If I move away from barn which is really ideal since our land is somewhat moist and slopes (imagine 6 acres on the side of a really large hill) then I lose my electric which I only use for a light. I am just stumped I have looked and looked and I just can't seem to find what I need as for a plan. One coop split into two sides maybe two doors two run areas with gates maybe higher fencing.....topping a run here is a waste it just really isn't feasible and would not last at all with all the trees debris etc. I want to let them out to free range but not constantly and I want it to be able to be controlled so they are not killing my flower beds and garden. uggghhhhhh anyone with multiple flocks out there with little budget? help!!!
