Looking for inspiration for a low level permanent run

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I have 3 hens. We have a Go and a 3m run. They free range all day within  Omlet fencing giving them an area of about 7mx4m. 

 

I want to make them a permanent run to protect from Mr Fox and plenty of room as their current run is too cramped for them. Something around 5 x 3 and preferably wooden. 

 

I have a low hedge both sides of my garden so cant really have a typical height walk in run. I know Omlet do the Low Rise but I think this is a little too low as I want to put some perches in. The ideal would be a height in between omlets full height and lo rise run. 

 

Ive trawled the internet and cant seem to find any wooden  type runs of this height. Ive even looked at dog kennels and runs but they dont seem to be open enough for the hens. 

Has anyone built their own or bought one they could share a picture with me?  

Not sure  if I am looking for something that doesnt exist?! 

Many thanks for any advice

Somewhere on here are lots of pictures of runs.  Someone more technologically proficient than me will hopefully come along to find it.  I would think your best bet would be to find a handyman to build one to your design.  Then you can put a picture up to inspire others!

Just looked through this thread. Some fantastic pictures and a reminder of the people who have been on here.

Yes, well done Cat tails, I wasn't sure that post would work because of lots of photos being on Photobucket, but there did seem to be photos there 😊

Someone locally is selling a HUGE WIR for £250. Reminds me of an Aviaries4U run which I always coveted.  Bargain for someone. Hope it goes to a good home.  And hope you find your low level one, MamaCoop.

If you click on “here” in the first post, you go to a thread with just the photos. Most there still work.
