We've recently finished our hen house and run. It's a fairly low budget effort (we used a lot of materials we had left over from other projects) that turned out kind of cute, I think. The Girls and The Colonel seem to like it. The coop is 4' x 8' and the run is 8' x 12'. We have a dozen hens and one rooster in residence. If you have any interest in seeing it going together you can look here .
