    Hi All! Well, we finally have a coop & run for our babies. Let me know what you think! I know the holes aren't as small as they "should" be, but we have hardware cloth all along the bottom, as well as buried and we lock them in at night. Oh, and feel free to guess the sex of any of them..... [​IMG]

    Wow, that is great. So jealous how much room the chickens have in yours. I have a coop and a separate mobile run I have to put them in each day and move around the yard. You did a great job!

    Very nice coop and run! I wish I had left mine open to the sky as you are more likely to have grass that will continue to grow. Also is cleaner with the natural cleansing from the rain. I use the hose to wash my run out but it's not the same. Sex, got me. Hard to tell until at leadt 6 or seven months old when they start to either lay or crow. Good luck =]

    I am so impressed.... It is beautiful...

    The chickens will destroy the grass regardless of the open sky but it is a great coop and run. I am so happy for you

    Very nice! I need to expand my run before the winter comes. I've lost too many chickens to the local fox and now have to keep them in. I'm hoping that if the run is bigger, they may be a little happier being "cooped" up all day:D
