Re: Garden v chickens

I can think of an easier solution to that problem than building a run ... first catch your chicken... (it'd take a while with your lot, but by the end of the summer, you'd have your garden back)

Re: Walk In Run - what do you do for a base?

I'm pretty sure this question has come up before & that the answer is that red mite live in the coop rather than in the run, so it shouldn't be a problem.

Re: Injured hen - HELP!!!

Maybe if a cat got in, and there was a bit of flapping & squawking, that would be enough to panic the cat?

Re: Garden v chickens

As long as they have access to enough outside space during daylight hours (Mo and Madchick put the measurements up earlier on I think) then they will be fine.
