I got this for free from a neighbor The run area was too rotten and what wasn't rotten was too over built to do anything with. Also for my plans I needed it to be all one level so I didn't reuse the above run area. My plan was to separate it into two compartments and use it as an outside brooder for broody hens or older chicks who were hatched in the incubator. The new run is built of recycled old growth redwood from a fence I tore down (except for that top middle 2x4, it is newer) This has very few new parts and was mostly free and recycled, not that that means much other than I'm making my dreams happen on what little I can afford. Cheers to the rest of you who have more hope than money!! !
