    We have got 2 Isa Browns(14weeks) in there and we have 2 chicks(2weeks old) in a brooder that will go in there as well.
    The over head view was taken from our deck.

    What did you use to build it with? It kind of looks like a Plastic Storage bin. I really like it. [​IMG]

    With that view from the deck , Chicken TV would be fun....A cold beer about 5pm and watch my girls.

    I am envious of the deck with a view of your coop area.

    Very nice and neat! I especially like the tree you were able to fence into the run. Plenty of shade and lots of dirt for the chicks to scratch around in. I'll be they will be very happy in there.
