I was fortunate enough to get a hold of a greenhouse frame and chicken coop on freecycle and since the manky old shed in the back of our garden was at the brink of toppling over I decided it was the perfect place for the chickens to go.
Just trying to decide on what to cover the concrete with for the chickens to run and scratch about in.
I am thinking either simply cover it up with the plenty of mud I have lieing about or to fill it up with sharp sand from wickes?
I plan to cover the run with a tarpaulin to keep the rain off them, and I plan to let them roam around the garden however on the odd occasion they'll be confied to the run and concrete (although predator-resistant) isn't really an ideal run material.
What are your thoughts on ground material for the run - mud/dirt, sharp sand, other?
