    Okay, I have several questions.
    1. What type of fence posts are best for a chicken coop? Cedar or metal?
    2. Average square footage for a run (per chicken)? We have 12 standard RIRs and 5 bantam Silkies.
    3. Best height for a fenced run? (Im not clipping their wings)

    Okay I think thats it for now. Thanks. [​IMG]

    I built my run @ 10 sq' / bird (and included extra for the addition of new birds) and 8' high
