    My hubby started building the enclosed run. We can't free range in our area. This should be plenty of room for 2 hens...right? Please share a pic of your runs and what cool purches or rope swings that you have. I am looking for ideas to maximize the space. THANKS ;)

    that is plenty of space for 2 hens!
    i don't have a picture to show as ours have a 20'x40' run in the country and they have access to a big field, but our 6 chickens first stayed very close to the coop, and they probably would've been fine in a 10'x12' run

    This is my coops and run setup before I finished my second coop. total run length is 36 feet by 7.5 feet wide. I just use sticks for perches through the wire holes.
