I'll get a pic tomorrow too. Ours was cheapish off of ebay and then Ben built an extension for the run for when we need to keep them in.

@clothmama we no longer have our chickens but are hoping to get some more soon. Sorry for the short reply. I've only recently come out of hospital following emergency surgery last week so not feeling very well.

When I'm feeling better I'll try and dig out some pics of our old set up and new one when it's built.

When we bought it we only had 5 chickens. Now we haven 11, we decided to cover all the wire and make it to one big night shed. There are tiles under the whole coop to prevent animals digging under it. They use the little night shed that's in the coop fot laying eggs.

We have a white Sussex amongst ours and she's a lovely hen, now the biggest of our little flock but very friendly.
