    I have a corner house, in a city in England. It tapers off to a point, yet I needed a safe haven for my ever expanding chicken family and to protect against foxes and hawks. A hawk recently had one of my chicks- picking t up and dropping it from height - it's still recovering. :( Fingers crossed [​IMG] Meanwhile, here are some pics of how we utilized the pointy-end of the garden. Ignore the grass - that has disappeared courtesy of the chickens!
    I know it's not great, but I love it! :)

    Thank you! Yes, it's always good to get talking to English members [​IMG] I guess this site is mainly American. There was talk about a UK section of the site, but it ever materialized. xx

    Very nice :) And you no longer have to mow grass as an added bonus. :)

    Love you set up. It is very nice. You should start a UK thread. I bet there are plenty of people who would subcribe.

    That's very nice. What a great way to utilize the space in your garden. Your chickens look very happy and you can tell that you realy care for them since you wrapped their coop with plastic.

    I would enjoy drinking my morning coffee on that patio watching the chickens for sure.

    Are you allowed to keep chickens in your garden!?

    Back in the UK I tried keeping just 2 rescued hens in my garden. Someone phoned the local council and I was make to get rid of them!!!!

    Looks very nice for your chickens - and your chickens look lovely.
