Temporary Eglu wanted - North west Kent

Recommended Posts

I’m looking to borrow an Eglu to use to introduce a new hen. Wondered if anyone had something I could use for a couple of weeks. Near Sevenoaks.

I’m too far away from you!  What about sectioning off part of your run and using a dog or cat crate ?

Thank you. We only have an Eglu Go Up with a shortish run so not a huge amount of room. I’ve bought a very small henhouse/hutch which I will surround with chicken fence. It has a ramp that closes so should be safe. Not ideal but as they have been in together with some rather nasty interactions I’m having to do this. They free range ok but my original hen doesn’t want to share yet. What I’m most worried about is the temporary run not being predator proof.

Are you trying to add a single hen to a single hen?

It’s a bit late now, but I would suggest you have 3 hens as your main flock. So if one dies, you can add two more. This way you will never have a lone hen and will never have to add a lone hen.
