Well it’s all well and good having one chicken run … but what if we need to segregate a chook due to ill health or introduce new chooks to the flock? What about lawn-weed eating duty?
This calls for a plan.
A plan involves writing down … paper … a pencil … maybe even a measuring tape! What has the world come to?
So we order some weldmesh.
‘X’ marks the spot … on in this case more of a line than a more treasure related symbol.
The first cut is made … no going back now!
Oh – I need big screws for this …. 90 mm (9 cm’s for those who are more used to cm’s) and lets make them pre-waxed! I love an Easy Drive Screw!
It must be serious … if a right-angle measuring thingy is involved!
Moving to outside … less mess.
I saw this.
And got lazy and used my jigsaw instead.
First prototype … laid against the weldmesh.
Weldmesh hurts hands … call in protection!
First panel complete. All fingers accounted for and still attached.
Using staples to hold it all in place, might need to replace with bigger ones though.
I Don’t Believe he’s actually using the 90 degree rule thingy!
Chickens are an Appreciative Audience.
Oh dear … technology to the rescue … courtesy of Howard, how big should the next bit be? Are you sure Howard?
Prototype for the measuring the side-bars … looks good, well done Howard!
All the side-bars cut.
Watching others work is tough as the chooks have exhausted their popcorn supply … time to break off and refuel the busy little monkeys.
