Re: Advice for run structure please!

Hi Tweety Pie and Marigold - yes, it seems I DID get them in time. The place I got them from were sold out by the following weekend, unheard of at this time of year. You don’t realise how daft folk are until something like this, do you? It’s quite worrying as places are selling out of feed, feeders ...

Re: Advice for run structure please!

Ahh, thank you big yeti man!! I seem to think I’ve read threads on here relating to tales of bedtime confusion, so it makes me feel better that others have had the same experiences! Fingers crossed tomorrow night will be smoother although apart from Ruth I was quite proud of them!!

Re: Advice for run structure please!

Bedtime update: So, amazingly, as it started to get dark, they all started to go in to the coop. Pippa, who has so far seemed the most shy and submissive, was, by far, the most focused and only went in and came back out a couple of times. Agnes, Louisa and Betty couldn’t make their minds up for a go...

Re: Advice for run structure please!

Hi everyone, thanks for your lovely comments!! We are really pleased with the run and the chooks are now in and settling in nicely with no fuss. I will attach some photos in a moment. I will also update you on how bedtime goes as I’m pretty sure none of them have ventured into the coop (I caught a c...

Re: Advice for run structure please!

I’VE DONE IT....I’M FINALLY CHICKEN READY!! So, after several intense weekends of back breakingly hard work I’m finally ready for my chickens and will be going to get them tomorrow! To say I’m excited is an understatement (you may have guessed that much!). I will post photos of them tomorrow but for...

Re: Cleaning product confusion

Thank you Lady A, Marigold and Mrs Biscuit! I went to visit the place where I am getting my girls from today and the owner was much of the same opinion. I have already bought some Barrier V1 (coincidentally), so I will opt for some poultry shield too for when I do a clean down. I bought a bag of dia...

Re: Advice for run structure please!

Ah, Marigold, that’s really reassuring and good to know! As labour intensive as it has been so far and certainly will be over the next few weeks, I’m definitely with you on this. I can’t imagine where I would begin to start rat-proofing once the chickens were in situ, so I think it is well worth put...
