    I want to try to keep costs down so I'm thinking of making the run shorter (was going to make it 6ft tall) but probably more like 4ft now to save costs.

    Anyone have one this short? Hard to clean? Birds ok in it?

    Thanks

    My last one was. I made one side a removable panel of hardware cloth framed with 2x2. If I find a decent photo of how I did it, I will share it with you. Currently I am building another coop but Mary hasn't decided what I am doing for the run yet. Lol
