Hi all just finished a new coop and run for the ladies and gentleman. It is 8X8 with a 4X4 extension off the back. Currently the run is 8X12 but will soon be 8X24 when I demo the old run. Attached half inch hardware cloth using screws and washers one of the many ideas I got from this site. Built a three foot wood fence so the dogs could not bark at them. Chickens get to roam the backyard while the dogs hang out indoors in the AC.
