Dismantling Walk in Run

Recommended Posts

I’m looking in to getting one of the omlet  walk in runs, however I only need it for when I’m away, as my birds are free range in the garden usually. Does anyone know if the runs can be dismantled ok? Thanks!

You can dismantle it, but it won’t be a proces I would want to repeat often. The building alone will take you some time. Any walk-in run is at its best when it is in a permanent spot, well permanently.

I’m about to dismantle my WIR and am dreading it.  It was bad enough building it.  So, agree with Cats Tails it’s not for the faint hearted.  As a first step you’d need to label each piece so you know where it goes and, find somewhere to store the pieces so you don’t lose them  

Good idea to have a run ready though, for even if you free range them now, if we’re hit by an Avian Flu outbreak, DEFRA may order us to confine them 24/7 in a covered run.  For potentially months...  so be prepared.

As a tip @Patricia W leave the run clips on the panels and you can fold some panels up, when still attached to each other. I have dismantled a WIR and 3 m Cube run in pouring rain and mud. It wasn’t fun...

It does get easier the more times you do it. I’ve only dismantled and rebuilt my WIR once, but I’ve done my Go run lots of times and it now doesn’t take me very long at all. The only thing I would say is that you’ll probably have to buy new run clips fairly often as the repeated clipping and unclipping will fatigue the plastic so they’ll break.

I have loads of run clips collected over the years, but will use cable ties wherever I can.  Much easier on the fingers!
