    I am new to having chickens but they have grown on me. I went from having 5 to now 15... oh and one duck- but I should really count her as a chicken because she thinks she is one.

    I just expanded and built a larger more secure run for them. I am still doing a few things to it but for the most part it is done. They love it and I love it!! Here are a few of my chickens. More to come once I take the pictures... [​IMG]

    Your run is awesome and your chickens (and duck) are beautiful.

    Quote:Thanks!! I had to go through a very tramatic experience when my dog got into my coop and killed a chicken and injured another one. It made me realize that the fence I had before was not as secure as I thought it was... so I drew up the plans for a run and I made sure that nothing was going to get in that wasnt supposed to be in. It is also equiped w an electric fence and there is rebar driven into the ground every couple inches to keep anything from digging in. Its hard enough to lose an animal.. even harder when it could have been prevented.
