New Walk-in-Run MK9

Re: Stray cat !

We had similar, skinny little stray cat, fed it, it gobbled it down like it hadn't eaten for days.

Came home from work the next day it was curled up on the sofa, it's been here ever since.

That was 12 years ago!

Re: More cheap wood!

Made a start on the coop mk#17 It will incorporate a wooden greenhouse at one end, we had a 10x6 greenhouse with a 6x6 greenhouse on the end with the coop bodged in, so I decided to make a proper job of it. The run will be 12x6, more than enough for my 4, and the green house will be 6x4. It's starti...

Re: More cheap wood!

Oh steve, surely you shouldn't be in denial about your wood, it's something to be very proud of!!! Went to pick up another bargain today, took two trips, my beloved berlingo was on its knees. 20, 8x2" joists, 6 were 11 foot long, the rest 16 foot long, all nail free, knot free, hole free and t...

Re: Oh no what is this bad ?
