Following Elcies posts on the chicken run construction I thought I would as well on what is going to be our new dedicated Duck run...

It started with a shed..




And now the posts are up and three sides of the kick boards buried into the ground to make a hurdle for my urban Fox folly



Now this will take some time to build so dont be expecting super quick results  :lol: :lol: :lol:   Im getting the bits needed as and when they turn up apart from the mesh which I am saving for.  

Move in date.........  before the winter!

Unexpected day off today so have pottered this afternoon.  All the base boards are now in as well as the facia boards.



The shed has been repaired inside and out so all is coming along quite nicely  :D :D

We think its a plum tree but we never get to eat the fruit as the birds knock them all off way before they get ripe ::)

Oh I put the fence at the back up today as well  :lol: :lol: :lol:

Are you sure it's sturdy enough Min?  :lol:


Got to keep those crafty foxes at bay you know  :lol: :lol: :lol:

You said it was going to be slow going!  That is very fast progress and is looking brilliant, well done  :D

Well thanks im quite pleased so far.  It will really slow down now due to funds!  I had the wood here already so that was the easy bit!

Im thinking about raised beds along the front of it.  That would be another obsticle for the foxes and I get to grow a bit in there as well of course!  :lol:

I've been given a greenhouse today as well that will fit nicely on the right hand side up against the run so more protection there as well!

Your hens will peck anything within reach through your fencing so you might not get much produce from your raised beds.
