The Ultimate Chicken Run: Part 1 Choosing a Space & Run

Welcome to our new project. We’re building the Ultimate Poultry Enclosure, a Chicken Run that show-cases the best of British retailers. Over the series we’ll talk you through our choices, the security, the housing and of course the enrichment to keep your flock entertained. There’s lots of ideas that you could adapt for your flock whether you have two chickens of two hundred!

In part 1 we’re clearing the space and building an 18m x 3m permanent chicken run.
