Predators are always a concern when it comes to our feathery friends. If foxes are on the prowl in your area and you would like added protection, why not consider adding a run to your chicken’s accommodation?
Garden Life Ltd is a family run business offering a large selection of steel framed walk-in chicken runs.
They are made from very strong galvanised 38mm tubular steel and are covered in strong 20-gauge hexagonal chicken wire mesh (with an optional stronger 19g welded mesh upgrade available). There is also a mesh ground skirt all around to deter tunnelling.
A range of sizes is available, from 2m (6ft) to 6m (20ft) wide and up to 8m (26ft) long.
There is also the option of part-covers to give shelter to your birds and help keep coops, feeders and drinkers dry. These covers are made from strong PVC material and secure to the frame with strong elastic bungees for quick removal in strong winds.
These self-assembly runs are designed to allow easy access for the chicken keeper while keeping their little ladies in one place, as well as offering protection from predators.
Prices for runs start from £259.99 (for a 2x4m chicken run). For more information, visit www.gardenlife.biz.
