I've got the runs!

   
I've got the runs made for three of my chicken sheds today. My friend Blind Pugh and I knocked these up this afternoon.









They are nine foot by four and we've made them with treated timbers. They obviously need wire netting put on them and I'll also add a plywood roof topped with roofing felt. I find that small runs like these stay much fresher longer if the rain is kept out. I'm pleased with todays efforts.

nice 1 pal  

Are these for some new breeding pens or chicks on the way ?
bodger

Breeding pens.
The sheds that go with them are four by fours and will have a cock and three hens in them.

After 24 hours of heavy rain, it looks as though its finally stopped, so today I'm going to put half inch plywood shuttering board on the tops of the runs and quickly get roofing felt on it.

Look forward to seeing them, are you putting internal or external nest boxes on them.

I am getting an un used large dog kennel this week end which will transform nicely as a breeder house.

No Dave, those are the runs to go infront of the sheds that I've already got.  
bodger

Tops on.









And one felted.
