A Sleeper & Woodchip Pack for the shorter-legged Maggie's Six Henhouse with a 6ft or 9ft long Run. Shown here with the Long Legged Maggie's Six House & Run.
Hardwood Woodchip is an excellent, hygienic, surface for the birds - almost self-cleaning. Just wash through with a garden hose if you haven't had any rain, refresh with new woodchip perhaps twice a year, and scatter some powder disinfectant over it once a month to keep it bacteria-free and fresh.
Much more healthy than bare soil or mud for the birds, and much less smelly too!
The packs contain a set of pressure treated timbers (see Details tab) to build a raised plinth for the 6ft Run section, with matching blocks for the feet of the henhouse itself, and bags of hardwood woodchip to create a clean surface for the hens.
The timber sleepers are softwood tanalised - not oak - and will be cut to the lengths required. Comes with an instruction sheet to aid placement.
The woodchip can be placed directly onto the ground/grass, 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.
