We built a coup using barn wood from a barn that was taken down. Have it raised 3 ft and built the run underneath and out in front of the coop. It is 4x6 and the run os 6x10. We picked up 6 ISA Browns that have been laying for a month. They have given us 4 eggs so far as the get used to their new home! Love this site! Been getting tons of info from all of you!
