Hello chicken keepers!
Don’t forget chooks can fly! Check out this regal phoenix rooster's moves!
While I’m all about the free-range lifestyle, it’s important to have a safe space for your girls to roam: if you can’t secure your yard from predators, you’re better off keeping them in an enclosed chicken run, rather than risking it! Here's a couple of examples of what Backyard Chicken Coop's Keepers have done with their chicken runs.
Bruce and Bindy Marshall have laid turf for their girls to enjoy on their rotation through their 4 Mansion Runs :)
Rebecca Dark has added natural stone and weathered logs to her Penthouse run :)
A chicken run should be fun! Here’s how you can keep your chooks comfortable:
- By giving them plenty of distractions with these handy boredom busters.
- By planting some lovely plants for them to nibble on. As a bonus - they look great!
- By shading them from the harsh summer sun.
If you have a creative streak, why not turn your chicken run into a garden feature? I just love having herbs and flowers around my chicken run, and they look just as good as they smell!
