    I wanted your input before my DH stamps it "complete." I couldn't have planned for this without BYC!

    Here is a pic of our run, north facing, 6' x 28'...

    Inside the run, ramp and a few roosts will be built....

    Coop inside shed, inside measures 6.5' x 7' (only 5 1/2' tall), against south window for some sunshine....

    Wow! I am humbled by all the awsome fancy housing that chickens on BYC get! Mine have a huge home, but not fancy like this!
    My only concern here would be that tunnel. I hope you have a way to get into that to clean it. I expect you will have a few of your gals that decide to nest there.
