Thanks. Loiner45, can you tell me more about your Egou/ aviary arrangement please? People keep recommending the Eglu but we also want a walk-in run, as it'll be permanently sited in one part of the garden and then presumably I can also make various 'intersting' perches etc for the hens in their run.
I found a site on the internet where they sell pultry run panels:
I have a greenfrog designs plastic coop inside a walk in run DH put up using avairy panels. We did this in March as art of a big garden revamp and it works brilliantly. Chooks have their own space and we have ours. We have a nice new turfed lawn ( which the chooks stare at longingly like dieters at a cake shop window ) and the kids can roll around onit without fear of chicken poo or finding no grass there to roll on!
I have some photos of the arrangment I can upload and link to if you are interested?
