    Recently I had the old run pen torn down and another was added along with a roof. The coop is inside and hopefully my chicks will not be snatched from Hawks anymore. I had 6 clear panels put in the roof to allow for sunlight to come into the pen for more light.

    Looks like they'll be safe. How many chicks do you have?

    I've gone from about 28 total down to 3 hens, 2 Roos and three Guineas. I got 6 new pullets yesterday, but they are still confined to a smaller pen until everyone gets use to each other and they grow some. They are only 10 weeks old.
    The Hawks, foxes and coyotes have taken a lot of my chickens and dispite my old fencing, I did not have a roof over it. So I bit the bullet, took it all down and rebuilt it all......including a roof.

    Yes that is a shipping container. No not part of the pen, just the side of the pen. I bought it a few years ago and use it to store hay in it. My insurance is cheaper if I do not store hay in my barn.
