This used to be for my ducks and it actually started out to be a dog house and then found out the poor dog had to be a house dog since he couldn't stand the heat in the summer. So after that I got ducks and we added on and we added on and well you get the point. This is the south side of the pen. This side is where their roosting area is. Then the run is toward the back where the door is there. That opens up into the run. Part of the run is covered in tin hubby got from work. They tore something down and they give several of them the tin. MEGA nice thick tin to. We just caulked the holes that was in it. I put the flashing down this side when I had the ducks. When I got baby ducks they could get through the poultry wire and plus I was worried about snakes getting the babies. The bluish thing on the roof is something I was watering the chicks in. I just put it up there with one of those roach motels under it. the little white things stuck in the wire are dryer sheets to help (hopefully) keep away flies and skeeters. ;-) close up of the south side. I have a table sitting inside with things I use on it. They can't stay off the thing! Hubby made the gates for me. He's a welder. This is the front side of the pen. I wanted part of it closed in for it to be warmer for them in the winter. So we put tin up on this side as well as the north side. The wire looking part on the front is the door. Yeah it's very wide. lol hubby made that one to. I put the little table there with the window box on it because I want to put that window box on the tin there where it's sitting but a little higher up. Want to doll it up some to make it look a little nicer. So the table will be moved when I can get my window box put up there. Our land goes down hill toward the pen so when it would rain it would drain through the pen. Hubby dug a ditch there right in the doorway for draining water away from the pen. I WAS going to put some gravel in it but I am always having to rake out the pine straw that keeps falling in it. This is the two areas I have that are separate little areas. One of them is suppose to be the nesting area with an external nesting box. It will be toward the corner where the tin is, but will be in the wired area. One of the areas is covered in tin, where the nesting area will be but the other just has a tarp over it. There is poultry wire on top of it but it was sagging so the tarp would fill up with water, so therefore the 2x4 to push it up so it wouldn't sag and fill up with water. lol I fixed them some little play areas with the PVC pipe. They LOVE sitting on the pvc pipes during the day when they are in the pen. This is at the very end of their run on the north side. It's all covered on the top in poultry wire. You can see my stick on the back side there holding the wire from rolling back up. lol We are putting welded wire over their run to make it more secure. We ran out of 1x4's so we had to fix the stick there to hold the wire so it wouldn't try to roll back up until we can get started back on it to get it finished. There's SO MUCH to be done still. I NEED to get some wire around the bottom of it on the outside so nothing can dig into the pen. Bee gave me the idea for the stumps in there. I still have one more I need to get put in there. Those came from us helping clean up Hattiesburg,Ms. from their tornado a few months back. Those are cedar stumps. Another shot of the run. All the pines around it keeps the wire on the top filled with pine straw or pine needles whichever one you want to call it. I set me up a little picnic table with chairs out here to sit with the chicks. Going to also make me a frame for a porch swing I have for out here to. I have several 4x4 posts hubby got from work on that redo they did a few years ago. All this stuff has came in SOOOOO handy! All those metal pipes I/we have on the roof of the run, came from there as well. That's what holds the wire up there from post to post. OK that should give you an idea what my 38 chickens have to play in.
