***UPDATE ON POST # 10*** Right now I have a 4ft x 8ft chicken coop(SEE ORANGE) and the run is 4ft wide by ... I think 12 ft(not too sure on that though) long. I now have the money to buy ALL the material for a new coop. For the run I will be using 4x4's(already have) and then using the wire I have on the run right now to wrap around the 4x4's. The new coop(SEE RED) will go behind the current coop and the new run will go where the old coop is and part of where the run is as well. So my problem is.... I know there is no way this coop will be done in one weekend. What do I do with the chickens, 6 of them, until its done? I could always build the coop while they are still in the old one, but what about when I move/tear down the old coop and try and put up my new run? Cause Im going to be using all the wire from the old run for the new run Im building. Anyone have any ideas?
