The chickens are going to get a really big surprise next week. Little do they know but after a lot of umm-ing and ah-ing we decided to splash out and buy them some more chicken fencing. It will give them lots more secure outside space and we can let them do a bit more free-ranging in confidence!
We chose this particular fencing because it has a special lower half of thin netting, which is perfect for bantams, as they can’t fit through and run into the veg patch. It even has a gate, so if they do decide somehow to make a great escape, we can open the gate and usher them back in.
Keith and Steve love their outdoor time a lot and put up a huge fuss when it’s time to go back into their run. They suddenly lose their shared brain-cell and forget where their run door is. Hopefully, this new addition to their home will encourage them to become a bit more sensible! I’ll try and post some pictures when it’s up and running.
