chicken pen

Recommended Posts

Hi there I used bark chips last year as omlet recommended and they get wet and slippery and smelly. This year I am using Aubiose/ hemcore and change it every 6 - 8 weeks - much better. The log roll edging just goes around the edge of the eglu run and stops them from kicking it around the whole garden. I am much happier with it this year and will jsut regrass the area in the summer when I move the eglu and run back out onto my allotment.

We have used bark since out girls arrived in May last year. We followed the Omlet guide at http://www.omlet.co.uk/guide/guide.php?view=Chickens&cat=Eglu%20guide You can see our finished area here http://club.omlet.co.uk/gallery/main.php?g2_itemId=13529


However, we are switching to wood chippings next weekend as I've been reading about bark chippings harbouring a fungus which can cause respiratory disease in chickens :(


If you want to fence them off then you could use this http://www.omlet.co.uk/shop/shop.php?cat=Chicken%20Extras&sub=general&product_id=22 as it can be moved around to restrict their access to certain areas of the garden accordingly.
