Sleeper & Woodchip Pack for Hobby Henhouse & 9ft Run

Quantity:  




Sleeper & Woodchip Packs for the Hobby Henhouse & Run. This option is for the 9ft long Run to make a level surface to sit the chicken run in one place and save you having to move it every week. An alternative to a No-Dig Anti-Fox Skirt - very fox-proof.

The Pack contains a set of pressure treated timbers, 10in x 5in (250mm x 125mm), to build a raised plinth for the Run frame with large timber 'pads' for the feet of the Hobby House and, in the case of the 9ft run, 3 bags of hardwood woodchip to create a clean, perfect surface for the hens.

The Timber Sleepers are tanalised softwood, they don't have to be dug into the ground, they are just as effective placed on top of the grass/ground - although, you may find you need to dig them in a few inches to make them level, and making them level is important to the stability of the run. Max.external dimensions of the plinth frame: 3240mm long by 940mm wide.

The hardwood woodchip is an excellent, hygienic, surface for the birds - almost self-cleaning when it rains. If necessary though, just rake and rinse through with a garden hose, refresh the woodchip with new perhaps twice a year, and also scatter some powder disinfectant over it once a month to keep it fresh. Much more healthy than bare soil for the birds, and less smelly too.

The Sleepers are cut to the lengths required, the max. length of any single sleeper is 4ft (1220mm), a detailed layout plan is included. The woodchip can be placed directly on to the ground, we do not recommend a geotextile underlay, not only for reasons of hygiene, as the 'poo' will not wash/drain through it, but also the hens will dig it up.

Delivery is via 7.5t Palletline Transport. If ordered with your Henhouse they will all arrive together within the carriage cost of the unit - if ordered separately then delivery cost approx £35.62 to most of mainland England, other parts of the UK may be slightly more.
