Lights, Camera...Protection Pen

The 19th of June 2013.

Two brave Flyte so Fancy workers set out into the summer heat to build a Flyte so Fancy Poultry Protection Pen.

Under the savage sun they relentlessly toiled, overcoming exhaustion and besting the remorseless Dorset sunshine...

...OK, if I'm being honest, the Ops Manager Richard and myself have built thousands of these Poultry Protection Pens, and it wasn't quite as dramatic as the opening might suggest. I do however remember it being very hot.

The difference this time is that we set up the Flyte so Fancy camcorder to show the process of building one of our walk in pens, just how easy to assemble they really are. With an cordless screwdriver, an assistant and a cup of tea, you can have the 9 x 9 protection pen together in an hour.

The protection pen is a light-weight walk in chicken run, to keep your hens safe from predators, other wild birds and contaminants. Made from panels, that simply screw together the Protection Pen is completely wired in inch by half inch weldmesh, which is incredibly durable, will stop foxes from breaking in and is plastic coated to keep it looking smart. A strong stable unit once fully assembled, the Protection Pen is an ideal secure run for your chickens.

Coming in a range of sizes from 9ft long up to 24ft long, the chicken pens can also come in variances of width, 6ft or 9ft, the smaller 6ft wide Junior Protection Pen being ideal for smaller gardens. There are also numerous extras for the Protection Pens, handles for smaller sizes for easy moving, mating panels for hen houses, no dig skirts to prevent predators burrowing in and the addition of a polycarbonate roofing to help protect your birds from the rain.

In our video Rich and myself are constructing a 9ft x 9ft Protection Pen (myself playing the role of the gangly Igor). The video has been sped up, however we had the pen built within half an hour. The addition of the handles is but a minutes work, and with the help of Mark and Toby from the workshop, it really demonstrates both how strong these chicken runs are once finished and how easy they are to move.

If you would like to know more about our Protection Pens, or would like to know which chicken run might be best for your and your hens, why not leave a comment below or call us on 01300 345229.
