    This is our coop before we decided to add on to it. We have 6 hens and decided to add to our flock. The orange and white posts show where the new run will be.

    First, we went to Lowe's and spent way, way too much money.

    Then he took off the old run and started building the new area.

    The new chickens love their home.

    Wow, that looks really professionally made. Haha, leave it to the biggest birds to get up on the highest roosts.

  7. Very nice. You might be able to sell your old run on CL, too!

    Will you enclose part of the new run to be a coop?

    ..or maybe you're in a warm location?

    Where in this world are you located?
    Climate, and time of year, is almost always a factor.
    Please add your general geographical location to your profile.
    It's easy to do, (laptop version shown), then it's always there!

    I sold it to a friend with new chicks. Worked out great for both of us!
