This chicken provides ample space and protection from predators such as dogs and foxes that can dig, thanks to its mesh ground skirt all around that makes it difficult to dig under.

The frame is constructed with very strong 38mm galvanised steel tubes, with tanalised timber door frames. The standard one-inch 20 gauge hex mesh can be upgraded to one-inch hole 19g (thicker) welded, or half-inch hole 19g welded mesh, simply choose the option you prefer when ordering and also consider our optional mesh ground cover made from our ultimate 19g welded mesh.


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.


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.


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.


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.  


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 4 metre x 8 metre is suitable for up to 12-16 birds.

  1. Holly

    From ordering to delivery, it was so easy. I was kept up to date by email. The delivery man was amazing and so careful. The run is very well made and relatively easy to assemble, instructions were pretty fool proof. I am very pleased and so are my chooks. Thank you. X

    Stunning. Am absolutely delighted as are the chickens. We built a tunnel to the cage because the hen coop was too big. This has proven excellent and all is so safe. Fantastic company.
    Thank you

    This is a very high quality product. Easy to assemble and will function well as a protected cropping structure after the hens have used it if required the hens being returned later to clear up the old crop debris.
