About Walk In Chicken Runs
For those trying their hands at keeping chickens in the back garden, a walk-in chicken run is a reasonably priced and convenient way to get started. These allow both you and the birds free movement, unlike old-fashioned coops or even the trendy eglu that require you to crouch down to reach the eggs that overcrowded hens lay. A few morning moments in the garden provides you perfectly fresh eggs for your breakfast or baking. Any fully sheltered portion, or coop, should provide 2 square feet per large chicken, while the open run should offer 10 square feet per chicken. Bantams require less space: 1 square foot each in the coop and 4 square feet in the run. In some neighbourhoods, chickens can free range, but this puts them at risk of foxes and also allows for the possibility that they will damage the neighbourÃ¢ÂÂs gardens. A walk-in chicken run from eBay assures you that your chickens are safe, your neighbours are happy, and tomorrowÃ¢ÂÂs breakfast will be waiting for you.
