    This was done yesterday, from conception to completion. It still needs some work; a nestbox and roost.

    The idea was to freep up more space in the run. It houses 4 small hens and a Seabright rooster.

    It isn't quite finished yet, but this is my small contribution.

    Dimensions are - overall footprint 4'x8'
    sides 3' tall, angle is 3' high, 4' long.
    The floor is 4'x4' square - roost and nestbox to be added....currently using 2 milk crates for boxes
    What do you think? Comments appreciated.

    It's called 'gridwall', for store display racks and whatnot.
    Got a really good price on it at work and couldn't pass it up.
    Worst thing about it is you can't really see through it from the house, you have to get right up to it.
    It is 4 feet by 4 feet with 2 inch squares. Haven't had problems with predators, but i'm sure there have been mice, lizards, and other unwanted guests in there.
