Its amazing and enjoyable to see the reaction of children staying at the Brittany holiday Cottage when they see the chickens. New guest arrived yesterday and the children were thrilled to see them and delighted to collect some fresh eggs.
The picture above shows the chicken run 1 week after the chickens arrived, 6 weeks later not a blade of grass can be found within the run and holes have been dug all over. It highlights the need to keep them in a designated area over wise they would create to much damage if left alone to roam the garden.
A friend was looking to buy an eglu chicken run that's a hen house and run combined that houses 2 hens and can be moved around the garden, but what Ive seen with my birds I'd rather just one corner of the garden effected by them than all over, particularly that the spot they are located in was not used and has now become an attraction.
