    This is my coop. I built it all by my little lonesome! It is OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOGly!!!

    That board on the front now has an automatic pop door so I don't have to let them out into the main run.

    90% was made from scraps I got off Freecycle. I even got the 10x10 dog run from Freecycle. I don't have a pic of the big run that I added. Will work on a pic of that.

    Hey there's Tessy the Headless Chicken!!

    I don't have a pic of my big run but here's the layout. This is a pic before chicken coop. They had a large dog house in the dog run until I got the house built.

    I think it's like 40ft by 80ft of 6ft chain link, 2-additional 10 ft dog run panels, horse fencing. All from Freecycle except the posts and ties. It's got a ton of those cement test clinders around the bottom to keep critters out. Now if I can keep the chickens in!! I have 3 that hop the fence.
