they need to be kept safe from marauding foxes!
|The beginning of the framework for the enclosure using star pickets and treated pine|
This customer already had a small shed for the chickens so my job was to build a fox proof enclosure around it.
I used simple, readily available and durable materials to build the enclosure.
Once my framework was in place I set to work leveling everything.
|attaching blocking to get the right levels for the framework.|
Once I was satisfied everything was relatively level I attached my treated pine timber framing to the star pickets using 100mm bugle head screws.
|ready for the chicken wire to be attached.|
After making a nice gate for access to those protein rich eggs and finishing off the installation of the chicken wire, my job was done.
Lucky for me my young apprentice was there to help and I took a picture of him standing next to the biggest sunflower I have ever seen. (apparently chicken poo is the secret to it's gargantuan size!)
