Chicken runs

Chicken runs and much more

A run is definitely an enclosed yard for the chickens to maneuver in throughout the day. Should you let your hens to ‘free range’, you will possibly not desire a run whatsoever.  I make my runs secure from predators eliminating the daily chore of allowing them to from the coop each morning and and locking it well in every night.

A run is often as simple as attaching the region underneath your elevated coop with mesh, or much bigger and much more elaborate. Suggested space per hen is 10 square ft.  More frequently these days I design and pages and use a run along with you on-site after i take the coop, then return a couple of days later to construct the run.  Please call us to go over your custom run, but here are a few prices which i use:

Kun Gyangs: This is a great beginner's guide for building your own chicken coop [Check Details Here⇒⇒⇒ ], I am really glad I found this plan before I started doing it, I would have made many mistakes that would have been very costly to my operation. I especially liked the chapter about the main issues that can occur with the chickens in the chicken coop
