    All I need to do once I get the time is cover the top of the run. Then I'll start Painting & triming the coop.

    Yeah, the wire is buried about 5" down. The run itself is 12'x16'. Right now I lock them in at night until I get the top wire on the run.

    You should always lock them in at night! They'll go in to roost anyways, so just lock them up and be safe rather than sorry. There are alot of predators that roam the night....why take the chance?
