So I inherited this coop and run from the previous owners of the house. He built it way at the back of the property against the trees so I don't have a lot of expansion options without taking out some trees. I'm wondering if this looks doable. Two pictures - one is the coop now, the other is annotated with what is there now and the only possible way I can think to expand the run. Right now I have inside this shed a very well insulated 5X7x6' high coop with three nesting boxes. There is a pop door to an outside run that is about 10x15 x 5.5' high. There is a door inside the shed into the coop and a cute nesting box checking door too. No insulation in the rest of the shed. The coop has one big window for ventilation. He told me when I bought the house that he had 6 chickens max for comfort. We are in a very cold snowy climate. He did not free range them. I have five in there now and they've been happy but 1) the run is completely shaded in summer by trees - they get basically no sunlight 2) I have attempted to free range them during the day but have no fence w/neighbors and have already had dog, fox, and hawk attacks and have a low tolerance for chicken loss. I am guessing I can fit 3-4 more in the coop itself (total of 210 cubic feet with two long roosts if I can give them more winterized space outside. They seem to be fine in very cold weather as long as there isn't snow in the run. Proposed new run expansion is the green -it's the only way I can avoid all the trees. I am thinking hardware cloth on 2x4" frames set on posts. What's there now is chain link buried under ground and attached to all the trees. It's not ideal. I can have that current door into the run open or closed depending on weather for them to get into the extra space.
