  1. Hi everyone, I’ve been scouring the net for answers for months. I have spent quite literally a fortune on a cube and walk in run, including a few gutter edge covers. After a few snatching incidents top security was paramount. However, the reality of torrential, endless Scottish rain is very true, and my run is still almost completely drenched after a good downpour despite being in a sheltered corner. The gutter edge works fine, but the water then just runs right in (like a stream) from the bottom parts. I’m reluctant to spend yet another £100 on more covers to still have the same issues. Thinking of trying to build an additional roof structure with decent guttering. Has anyone done this, or had success moulding ondulin panels to the current structure? the run is 2x4m, on a slabbed surface with added drainage gaps, and covered in wood chips. The drainage is less of an issue, it’s the dry area I’m after. Pumpkin the grumpy wee pekin would be ever so thankful for anyone’s advice. Her Orpington sisters really couldn’t give a toss. Many thanks!
  2. I’ve a lovely Omlet WIR - 3m by 2m which I have recently relocated onto a brick-paved patio. The patio slopes toward a drain at the end. When it rains, the water runs into the WIR and makes the bedding all wet. I poop-pick daily or two-daily, but nevertheless some gets left and that dissolves into slurry. I’ve tried putting roof flashing along the foot of the side and front of the WIR, and I’ve bought some sandbags which inflate when water touches them and put these on top of the flashing. However the run is still wet after rain. The flashing sticks down well, but where the grout is between the bricks, the water still seeps its way underneath and into the run. I think what I’ve done is making a difference. The wet zone is now only 20 - 30 cm deep. But I wonder if anybody else has this problem or could suggest something else I could try. I have another eglu with tunnel set up in on grass and a third eglu with an open run on dirt so the birds can dust bathe or just have a change of scene, but this WIR is their main home and winter accommodation as it means I get no problems with rodents as the birds aren’t on earth for long enough to attract them. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks Gill
