After losing the original 3 bantams to a weasel we decided to build a chicken Alcatraz.



The run is 6 feet x 6 feet with welded cloth all around.



2x2 patio block surround the run to prevent digging predators and hungry poodles.



The floor is insulated to R12 and covered with wood.



Inside surfaces are backed with water resistant fiber-cement.

Starting the walls today. Time for breakfast!

A fortress indeed. Nice work.



When you are done will you make one for me?

We have a fox that has been checking out the pens. I knew we had a family of them in the neighborhood so I built accordingly. I also have the habit of sleeping lightly so I caught him checking it out last night. I am not really worried since we made ours fortress like as well. I think I am going to add the 2x2 pavers like you did yours. I like the look and the function is wonderful. Too heavy to lift and too hard to dig.

Very nice job!
