    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.

    What a great set-up! How kind of you to block the view so that the dogs don't bark at your girls! My DH is still working on my coop and I am impatiently waiting as I pick up my isa browns on June 23rd!

    Great coop and run! Love the "blocking the view" idea for the dogs.

    I just let my chicks in our run and our dog at first went nuts! That dog barked an hour, got hot, bored, then went and laid down. Our chicks seemed to be completely oblivious to the dog, no reaction at all ! Who knows???
