Sleeper & Woodchip Packs for Protection Pens
Sleeper & Woodchip packs for Flyte so Fancy Poultry Protection Pens. Select size above.
The packs contain a set of pressure treated timbers, 10in x 5in (250mm x 125mm), to build a raised plinth for a Poultry Protection Pen and the right number of bags of hardwood woodchip to create a clean surface for your hens.
Much more healthy than bare soil for the birds, and much less smelly too. The woodchip can be placed directly onto the ground, we do not recommend a geotextile underlay (it's not hygienic and the hens will dig it up).READ MORE
The Timber Sleepers don't have to be set down or 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 to make them level (spirit level advised), and making them level is important to the stability of the Protection Pen.
The 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, replace with new perhaps twice a year, and scatter some powder disinfectant e.g. FSF Run Sanitiser, monthly to keep it bacteria-free and smelling fresh.
Pack details: The packs contain a set of pressure treated timbers, 10in x 5in (250mm x 125mm), and several bags of hardwood woodchip to create a clean, perfect surface for the hens.
The timber sleepers are tanalised softwood, are cut to the lengths required and will come with a detailed layout plan for placement - it's just like putting lego together really!
If you would like to see a pre-purchase copy of the layout plan, which includes exact dimensions, so you can check its size, please just call or email us.
