    Thanks for the info. Nice coop! Your girls are livin large. Come mid December or so we plan to move the tractor to the part of the garden we're cover cropping, then let them have access to a little of it at a time. Maybe it will last a little longer that way. I can't believe what 4 chickens can do to 100 square feet of pasture in 24 hours. They can pretty much take it down to bare ground. Amazing! We seem to be headed in the same direction with our girls.

    My girls love their new Chunnel. Expensive and labor intensive- worth every hour and every penny. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    It goes from the main coop/ run, behind my shed, down the side yard to a second run. And yes- that's my little boy checking it out! Hope it's the last time he's in there :)

    I am sorry for asking this but how exactly are y'all building these. I am interested in them but am curious the material that everyone is using.

    I love to share info thanks for asking hunterheart1113- I'm starting a thread called "Build a Chunnel..." as several have asked for more instruction and I didn't want it to be lost in a older thread. I wanted to start a Thread anyway. Take a look and tell me what you think.

    Hi Mamadawn,

    Your chunnel is amazing. Our chickens are disappearing, we need something like that desperately.
    Can you tell me how you made it?
    Or at least what you used for the frame?
