Well – the run is on the concrete – and two bags of B&Q; Hardwood Terracotta Woodchip and they are very happy indeed.
Next tasks are to get some stones to go between the base/lawn for drainage, then add a layer of soil – and grow some grass – and ensure the Damp-proof-membrane (in blue) is at the right angle to keep the run dry.
The chooks seem happy enough. We just need to fashion a path from the patio to them, ready for the winter and slippery times.
We also planted up a herb-tub, and another raised-bed, but that’s for another post.
