    Here is a link to my page showing pics from my recent conversion of what once was the shed I stored my waterfowl decoys in. https://www.backyardchickens.com/web/viewblog.php?id=58814

    I'm in the process of completing the run. I have some pics of Russian Orloffs on my page. Can anybody sex them?

    Comments welcome.

    I can't seem to get the link to open. Maybe it's just my computer.

    Quote:I'm not sure which boards you are referring to, but I assume you mean the roost boards. They are 2x4's and are used so the chickens can sit on their feet in the winter time. I used 1x4s to secure the roost board because they make the roosting unit more stable.
