    Background - I have just bought a new hosue nd it has a timber house that looks like a small shed but i think was a childs playhouse. It has two windows and a door and stands on a concrete block.

    The question - Would I be able use wire to predator proof the windows, and secure the door so the chickens can roost in there? Also would I be able to get a run to attach the the side for them?

    SOrry if this is a daft question

    I used my old 8 x 6ft garden shed and adapted that to keep preditors out. I sounds like a great plan all i did was leave the window in the side and mesh over it on the inside and attached a 15 sqre metre run with a mesh roof on. [​IMG]

    if the troubles that are known to be troubles are avoided than you will not have big troubles. keep the bad things out and the good things in and you should be fine.
