I free range - the main coop is the a-frame to the left. The fence is only there for when I need to separate or when I get new birds so they will get use to where the coop.

Since I got the two girls I've been constantly tweaking the coop. I had a 2x2 roost and they wouldn't touch it. Tonight I put in a 1x6 and they still weren't too thrilled but after I blocked the fluffy nesting area they didn't have a choice. Should I put walls around the nesting area or leave it open? Had the girls 9 days now and still no eggs. Previous owner said they were good for 6-10 eggs per week.

Here is my setup. Found the barn shed on Craigs list for free & repainted it inside & out. Put a wall up, nesting boxes, etc. Bought a 10X10X6 dog kennel for their pen. Going to fence in on the other side of the coop for their run. They free range everyday, all day.
