I thought I'd post a pic of the henhouse/run we use for our two barred rock hens, Gladys and Granny. We also have six, 4-week old barred rock chicks who are quickly outgrowing their plastic container home in our sunroom. We've managed to fashion a daytime run for the chicks out of a swing frame, chicken wire, an old ladder, etc. Let me know what you think. FYI - We have two labradors and 3 cats that keep the predators down to a minimum - aside from an occasional hawk. We also don't leave the chicks out overnight in this. The chicks new coop (From Cedar Grove Products in Lancaster, PA ) will arrive in a couple weeks. From that point on the chicks will move into their permanent home and we'll introduce the two older hens to the chicks when they are bigger.
