Cat tails

New (not quite walk-in) run!

Recommended Posts

After some time, I finally upgraded the extended run of my chickens. As I don’t have any foxes around in this area of the Netherlands, I always just had a piece of wire mesh with some netting over it. But it made cleaning a hassle and I was getting fed up with it.

So ordered some scaffolding supplies online and made my own metre high run. So happy it all fits! Still waiting for the shade cloth I ordered with it to go over the top, but for now they seem convinced enough they are enclosed and they’re not planning their flapping escape.DE99AE52-9C40-4F3A-A9DF-5D635EF4E10F.thumb.jpeg.ee93e3cf4415adf701b4d6dce3fe8b40.jpeg

And actually incredibly easy to assemble! I found an online store that cuts the pieces to length for you. So just needed an Ikea type key to turn the screws.

When I was little my parents built a house and then converted a barn so I spent most of my childhood basically on a building site. I wanted to be a scaffolder 😆

Cat tails that is an excellent run and a very beautiful shade.

Did you choose the picture or was it one of your own ?

It’s a picture I took last year in the garden. I think it looks sunny without being too dark.

Still very chuffed with the result! So happy everything worked out!

As the butterfly cover isn’t waterproof, ordered a clear tarp and got it in the post today. Really happy with the quality and the protection it offers.

Oooh that looks like a nice sturdy cover - just what they need to keep them dry and sheltered from anything nasty autumn and winter might throw at them.
