|Started off as a tractor type arrangement that sits on top of the existing veggie garden bed - no cleaning!! Cons : it was very bulky to move from bed to bed when the time came.|
|Constructed a coop on castors and modified the above tractor into a run so it was easier to shift|
|Here it is in action|
|Here it is with run - it was nice to have it close to the house because it meant gathering eggs was easy in the wet!|
|Moved the coop eventually down the bottom of the garden nearer the veggie beds to make moving mulch easier.|
|Existing arrangement with cute white picket fence - an ebay find!|
1. Removing mulch in the run and replacing it with sharp sand to make it drier for the girls. Currently using sugar cane mulch in the run - great for compost but it can get smelly when it rains too much - like this summer!!
2. Re-modelling the coop to make it slightly bigger - it needs to be patched up - starting to show signs of wear and tear and it's not leak proof.
