To create a permanent site for your chickens - and to save you having to move the Run every few weeks - why not consider this package to make a secure (fox-proof), level surface for your House and Run by raising it on a timber plinth and filling the inside surface with hardwood woodchip.
The woodchip can be placed directly on to the ground, we do not recommend a geotextile underlay, mainly for reasons of hygiene as the 'poo' will not wash/drain through it but also the hens will dig it up.
This kind of woodchip is an excellent, hygienic, surface for the birds - almost self-cleaning when it rains, or wash through with a garden hose occasionally, refresh with new woodchip perhaps twice a year, and regularly scatter some sanitising powder over it once a month to keep it smelling fresh and bacteria-free. Much more healthy than bare soil for the birds, and much less smelly too.
Max.external dimensions of the plinth frame: 3960mm long by 1520mm wide.
The packs contain a set of pressure treated timbers, 10in x 5in (250mm x 125mm), to build a raised plinth for your Long Legged Maggie's Dozen Henhouse & Run and 5 bags of hardwood woodchip to create a clean, perfect surface for the hens. The timbers will be cut to the lengths required (max. length of any single sleeper is 4ft) and will come with an instruction sheet for the layout plan.
Currently 1 - 2 week delivery time. Delivery is via Palletline carrier.
