    was think about cutting them a door and leaven the door that's there and there do just opens to
    there run and then making little doors behind the nest box's so and then only going in to visit clean and feed
    so i am not stressing them if they in there nest why i collect there eggs

    Here's some pics of my run, including the gate. My run is covered on top also because we have a lot of owls, hawks and even eagles here. It was really quite simple to make the gate - 4 2x4s cut at 45° angles. Then I used metal corner pieces from Lowe's to put them together, and hinges and a gate latch from Lowe's finished it off.
