Im planning on building a new, predator proof run, as the old one is about 10 years old, the chicken wire is rusted, its too small, and obviously is not safe(something got one of my chickens already this year). So this is what I have in mind, there will be wood at the bottom to prevent paws from reaching in, chicken wire at the top, and I *think* the cover will be half tin for shelter from rain and snow, and the other half will just be wire to keep hawks out but let sun in. The wood im getting is just an ugly dark brown. I want to paint it. Any idea for what color?? Our house is white, and the henhouse needs to be repainted also, so I was thinking probably the trim would be painted to match it. Another option that I kinda like but would take some work, would be to stencil chickens onto it.The inside door of the henhouse has our original 4 chickens steciled onto it. We have 13 chickens, so that may take a while. There are going to be decorative pebbles around and the run, it will be covering the hardware cloth "skirt" and I want to put some potted veggies for them around there.
