Chicken run

Postby JohnN » Thu Jan 18, 2018 11:13 am

My next-door neighbour has a large chicken run for sale, and I am wondering if any KGF members would be interested. It's about 30ft long and suitable for at least a dozen birds, with an enclosed run and night time accomodation and laying area at one end. It has been completely dismantled and ready for collection. It cost over £800. It's located at Hookwood, near Gatwick.

Thinking that would make a good fruit cage as well.

Good idea, Colin. Perhaps a couple of small apple trees, chickens love pecking around under trees and would probably eat the windfalls as well as any bugs trying to climb the trees.
How's N Norfolk at the moment? Lovely area, we often stay with friends at Fakenham.
