Ok so we've not got our little beauties yet ( and i've explained more on our background etc in the newbie section ) but I thought id share the progress on our chicken house. Our 6 lovely ex batt hens shall be with us a week on saturday
This is the shop bought house we invested in
This is the space that were building aroung this for the girls to have a good run
The main timber structure is up , and ready for the mesh and gate to be made
The bamboo screening one for prettiness , and two to keep my nosey neigh bour out lol (bob taking a look our bullmastiff)
Obviously we've still got a way to go - but were getting there. The tiny patch of grass is to be flagged , the big patch of mus is going to be dug up and re layed ina secure setting as to not get all over - with a roof over the top.
The actual house will go in the far left corner - were going to put up different levels , and peches etc - along with toys to keep the girls occupied.
Were also allowing the girls to roam the rest of the garden , by our watch only so will have even more space. Were also going to put flowers outside the enclosure and lights to make it look all pretty too.
Shall share images with each progression - if anyone has any advice tips etc then please feel free to share.
