    Does anyone have pics of small coops and runs for a SERAMA pair?
    Especially a quick and cheap ez run.
    I do have a medium dog crate they could sleep in temporarily. I need to put the coop or crate in the run to keep them safe.
    I want to elevate the coop or crate off the ground keep them at eye level and have a ramp to the run. It seems like it would be so much easier to keep it clean an handle the chickens.

    I have them in a dog crate now w/ a basket for a nest. I laid panels of wood around it for wind break. Today, I put a baby pool on top so no rain can get in.
    The tiny hen is laying eggs, so she needs a cozy spot of her own.

    I just bought a pair and I need to rig something up quick.
    I know they need to be kept warmer than most chickens.

    Search Craigslist for (free?) rabbit hutches with trays..wire off underneath and make a ramp down to grass.
    Easy peasy!
