Adding a tree in my run?
Featured Stories on BackYard Chickens
At a minimum, my run was covered in chicken wire to deter hawks. I think some kind of netting, mesh, or wire is necessary for that, so the run can be used for times when a hawk visits. Therefore, and plantings in the run need to be short enough to fit under, so small trees or shrubs. Mary
I have seen people use their old/dead Christmas trees for things like this. More for shade/hiding places, but could work for a "hop up" area if you thinned out some of the limbs. Maybe get a few from the neighbors after Christmas?
