    Freshly Laid Egg
  1. Girly- I think that may be a smiliar run to the one I have bought, was it from ebay? Although mine has a curved roof and is 3x3m. The Omlet walk in run is really nice looking, wish I could stretch my budget to that but I have already spent so much, these will be the worlds most expensive eggs, but then it's not really just about the eggs is it! 😄
  2. Ahh I would love a whole flock but we live in the suburbs and I am a bit worried about noise/smell and neighbours. Also I am limited by our run size as they will be spending most of the time in there. It's my absolute dream to move rurally and have a collection of various animals, including of course a flock of chickens, one day maybe!
  3. Thanks for your replies, I am thinking of cancelling the order and then ordering the cube. Thing is once I have set it up if it does seem too small it would not be easy to return. I guess the sensible option would be to get three chickens instead but I really have my heart set on four...
  4. Hi all, Have purchased the go up (although it's not arriving for a few weeks yet) to go inside or attached to a 3m x 3m run. We want to get four hybrid chickens such as ginger nut rangers. Even though the specs say that you can fit four chickens I am worried it won't be big enough and wondering if I should have got the cube instead. Can anyone advise? Thanks
  5. Ahh perkins are gorgeous! Cat tails thankyou for the advice about the cube but it's a bit beyond my budget at the moment. We have decided, due to the price of wood, to buy a metal walk in run instead. It will be slightly smaller at 9'10 x 9' so will probably opt for the Eglu Go Up and then three or four chickens,maybe hybrids I am not sure. Perkins?! Auto correct fail! Pekins
  6. Thank you for your replies. We were thinking of three or four chickens, four being the maximum we would want so hopefully they would be happy in there if we add as much enrichment as possible. I was considering getting the Eglu go up as I thought that would give them a little more space underneath it. The breeds I have been looking at are either hybrids or ginger nut rangers (think they have lots of different names) thanks for the tip about Leghorns I had read they were flighty and not good for confinement. Now just need to start building the walk in run!
  7. Good morning all, I was wondering if any of you keep your chickens in a run the majority of the time. If so, what size is your run and how many chickens? We were considering building a run about 10' x 10' and wondering if this would be big enough. I also wonder if there are any breeds that are happier to be confined?
