lightweight pen - make this with portable nesting boxes out of Tupperware containers-4 stacked one on top of the other. Provide a PVC bar for the hens to jump up on to access the upper nesting containers. Also, cover with blue plastic tarp for shade & rain protection. May also put a door on BOTH ends & make slightly longer if it isn't too heavy.
Our new chicken run. Yes that is our old trampoline frame. I used 30m of chicken wire and about 200 zip ties to cover it. I used the poles for the safety net to fill in the spaces between the legs. Then pulled the chicken house up to a gap i left in the wire and bungeed that to the run. Now the girls should be safe from the neighbours dogs!
