    Here is a picture of my partners breeding bard. Pens are 10x10 with outside runs. Overall size is 30ft wide x 90 ft long. Big barn and big pens for big chickens. She mainly raises LF Wyandottes, Cochins and Marans so she does need the room for those big birds.

    I will take some more pics of it in the future. It is already wired for electricity in each pen and lights for each pen and a bank of lights down the middle also. Plumbing is not done yet but will most likely be overhead hanging waterers in the pens. There is 5x3 sliding door on the outside of each pen to open up to the runs. The runs are not done yet but will be by the spring most likely. It is huge!! haha...
    I will post some pics of the breeding pens in a month or so after all of them have been set up for breeding season.

    How big are the runs going to be? That is just a super set-up! I love it.

    The runs are gonna be 10x 25 approximately. It is a pretty good setup, very proud of her for coming up with this design and slowly and surely putting it all together. Started working on it last March. Its a dream barn for sure. Glad she lets me keep my chickens in it and lets me gawk in its grandeur haha...
