    here is mine its pretty simple run isnt tall enough to stand up in but you can just make it taller. it is attached to the coop and the run has little wheels on it. i attach it to a truck or something and the chickens can have fresh grass constantly. it look small in the pic but it is big enough for about 10-12 hens

    Here's what I built for a few chickens and it works great, it's small enough to tuck in a corner and I have acces to get the eggs from the back. I built a large feeder that last for 5 days (not pictured) and I can get inside if I need to.

    Edit: the size is 4' x 12' x 4' tall

    Don't forget to take into account what climate you are in. Chickens are more tolerant of the cold than they are the heat. What area of the country are you in?
