An optional low maintenance PVC partial covering can also be used in times of bad weather or to provide shade in summer.
ASSEMBLING YOUR CHICKEN RUN
All of our chicken runs come with full, very detailed assembly instructions. You may want some help from a friend but if you follow the step by step guide that comes with your run, getting your chicken’s new home assembled is easy. You can always contact us on our Freephone number 0800 832 1962, if you have any issues or questions regarding the installation of your new chicken run. The tools you’ll require to assemble your chicken pen are as follows: Cross head screwdrivers, Measuring tape, Wire cutters, Step ladder & Hammer
If you decide to increase the size of your run, either because you want to extend the room available to your chickens or other pets, or you want to house more poultry or pets, you can extend later by adding a single or multiple, extra 2 metre section. Simply call us to discuss your options.
Our runs will sit on any surface providing it is relatively flat (up to a 1in20 slope should be fine) but different surfaces have different advantages/disadvantages.
A grass or earth surface is probably best for chickens. It allows the ground skirt to be pegged down but there is a possibility of rats tunneling under the frame to get inside. But we do have an optional full ground cover made from our ultimate welded mesh with half inch holes to help prevent this (select this option when adding this product to your Cart). Weed control won’t be an issue because your chickens will likely eat them before they have a chance to surface.
The runs will also sit well on a hard/concrete/tarmac surface which eliminates the worry about tunneling predators but won’t allow the ground skirt to be pegged down.
LOOKING AFTER YOUR CHICKENS
We have compiled a very handy, beginners guide to keeping chickens, if you need to know the important facts about the care and safety of your feathery friends. The guide covers, breeds of chickens, keeping chickens in your garden and which predators to protect against.
If predators are a problem in your location, we provide optional mesh weights to protect your poultry. We always recommend the most secure option, a heavy gauge 19gm welded mesh, used to cover your chicken pen with an optional ground cover upgrade.
We also recommend part-covering your chicken run for protection from sun and rain. You can buy covers as a separate item or as an optional purchase with your run.
A VARIETY OF USES
There are so many different uses for our chicken runs, it’s impossible to list them all. The most common use is to provide a safe home for chickens and other poultry but the range of uses is as diverse as your imagination. People are using our pens to house rabbits, as a cat or dog run, as an aviary and even to protect fruit trees.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT SIZE
When you’re deciding which size run will house the number of chickens you have, a good rule of thumb is to allow 2 square meters per bird. You should also allow for the space taken up by your coop, if the coop is going to be kept inside the run. This 2 metre x 2 metre is suitable for 1-2 birds.
