    I'm sure that's where the novel was based and probably also close to where the films were made. Who is your favourite Miss Marple? Mine is Joan Hickson. #kidnap

    I agree. I want atleast 10 acres. Large coops for different breeding chicken groups, maybe some ducks, my horses, dog, ect..

    Yep me too. Would really like to employ some permaculture farm principles and make a fully sustainable place to live.

    Thanks Jtbass! Will look through the pictures and see if I can find some inspiration haha. I'm not the most building inclined, but I'm sure I could figure something out. I'm one of those people that need a very detailed list of instructions on when it comes to building things. [​IMG]

    Thats kind of how I built my run. It can be disassembled pretty easily if I had to move it. Framed 6' long wall sections with framing 2"x4" My sections are 6'7" high. We built one with 4"x4" verticals on the outsides for the one with the Door. I have 2 coops attached to this central run. 1 is a small prefab coop bought at Costco. The other is one I designed and built to go with the run.

    Im in a city residential area with good fencing between neighbors I plan to put pavers around the bottom. Im a little concerned about racoons though I have not seen any in my neighborhood because of the dogs but you never know what the future holds. I don't have doors I can close on the coops yet but its planned. Right now the worst I have to deal with are hawks and owls.
