The chicken run rebuild!
Building the run with old tent poles and galvanised 1" wire. Just the front left to do now!
Thick rubber floor inserted. Easy to remove & clean.

The coop is done; entrance ladder built & with a hanging hook for night time storage.
Typical British summer weather! Rain stops shingle/felting part for today.
With the roof on to allow daylight in, the shingles will go over the apex to seal it in.
The front is boarded up properly, waiting for the shingles / felting. Typical British summer weather! #rain
The chickens access door is made and hinged on. More to come!
It's always muddy this side in the winter, so we've changed the access point for the other and boarded this one up.
Pallets are full of holes... So the anti rat wire is going in!
Access doors made and hinged; toomone had to be rehung but it's in.
The reason it's being built; chicks! 8 of them + mum!
Took a while as had to finish breaking the pallet apart. Done now!
This side will have access to inside so we can clean it. This part though, won't as it's in the run. It is being boarded.
Roof needs to pitch and this spare roof joist is perfect to allow that to happen.
