Hi All, I'm giving chickens another try..... I need to plant some small trees, bushes, etc. both in and around my run to give some cover for my birds. I will also probably put some cover netting around certain portions of the run as well but I'm not trying to perfectly enclose (from the top) my run. The birds will get locked inside their coop each night. They can also hide right underneath the coop as well. I am going to dig out some small trees and bushes from the woods around my house and transplant them but it will still be a couple years for them to get established. Any ideas ? Here's a slideshow of when I built the coop last Summer (2007). I had birds until December or so but hawks proved to be more troublesome than in previous homes I owned. I got rid of the birds rather than continue to lose them at a rate of one every two weeks. I'm ready to give it shot again and just want to provide better cover.
