Just wanted to share because I got the idea from scouring the many awesome ideas on here! We can't really free range because our property is not fenced and I worry about ground and sky predators. Anyhow....I made this so that we can let them out of their stationary run for some grazing but not risk their safety, when weather requires we will cover part of it with a tarp and I have a portable nesting box that I will put in there when the chickens need it but they are not laying yet.This is 4x8 and just over 5 feet tall in the center. We only have 4 chickens so it is a good size. It is light enough that I can drag it around by myself and I can get in and out of it easily, I can also stand up in it though my husband cannot. I did make it so that I can fill it with water to add extra weight. Also, it was easy enough to build that I didn't need my husband's help!
