    [​IMG]I like the way you put the run together....with panels. That just makes common sense to me... after trying wrap the wire from post to post on preset poles....I would much rather have done it with panels... Way to go![​IMG]
     
  2. Thanks! Just seemed less overwhelming that way.

    This is my first attempt at building a coop and run and ive loved every minute of it. Its 12 feet x 7 external with a 7 feet x 3.5 feet internal and I have 4 birds. Ive filled the run and coop with sand and made a roost from an old tree branch. Most of the material used was reclaimed....6 windows from an old school, an old dilapidated bicycle shed in fact the only new items were the roofing panels, the hardware cloth and the automatic pop door.

    Moved the 32 chicks out of their 12 square foot brooder into the first of the 2 coops I'm building. The interior is for the most part finished, but I do need to do the exterior trim, paint, and then build the run, and THEN instal the pop doors for each side. That will all happen over the next couple of weeks, then I'll get to work on completing coop #2

    I'll do better pictures of the chicks later. I didn't realize until a short while ago that the camera focused on the netting rather than the birds.

    Each pen is basically 6' x 6' of floor space. The chicks are 4 weeks old and there are about 16 in each side. As soon as I get the 2nd coop built (identical to this one) there will be ~ 8 birds in each section. I hope to have both coops and runs completed before the roosters discover their real life's purpose [​IMG]
