Sleeper & Woodchip Packs For Junior Protection Pens - pens of 6ft x 9ft up to 6ft x 18ft.
The Junior Pen Sleeper Packs contain a set of pressure treated timbers (see Details tab) to create a raised plinth for a Poultry Protection Pen and a suitable number of bags of hardwood woodchip to make a clean, perfect surface for the hens.
To create a permanent site for your chickens - why not consider this package to make a secure (fox-proof), level surface for your Junior Pen by raising it on a timber plinth and filling the inside surface with hardwood woodchip.
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 the woodchip perhaps twice a year, and scatter some Sanitising Powder Disinfectant once a month to keep it smelling fresh.
Much more healthy than bare soil or mud for the birds, and much less smelly too!

The timber sleepers are softwood tanalised, are cut to the lengths required and will come with a detailed layout plan. If you would like to see a pre-purchase copy of the layout plan, which includes all exact dimensions, so you can check its size, please just call or email us.
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 hens or pets may dig it up.

Let down just slightly by misleading delivery information. Too many small sleeper sections, thought I was paying for pts "sleepers" as the title implies. Disappointed.
Excellent as always!
Good delivery schedule I was disappointed that the sleepers did not come in longer lengths. The 15' length came in 4 parts and the 6' in 2 parts. This made it quite diffuclt to fit and get level on the grass.
Returned after purchasing the excellent log store to purchase the classic duck house and junior pen. Quality product easy to build junior pen. Ducks love it
