I am about to begin construction of my coop (my 6 chicks will arrive the week of June 13th!) and I am looking at different designs and such, trying to weigh out cost, size, materials, etc. So, I am wondering how important it is to have a coop with a run that is human accessible vs the shorter run designs that I have seen. I keep looking at the coop pages on BYC and it seems like a pretty good mix of tall and shorter. Just thought I would open up a thread to discuss pros and cons of different coop design options. Thanks!
