    ^^^ That's a bit like mine, Snadge. 3 interconnected runs that can be closed off - in a L with the coop in the bend of the L. The coop area is roofed with perspex and both the other runs are covered either with pond liner or debris netting. The sides are chicken wire and small mesh.
    I'll have to stop letting thechooks help me in the garden though

    What do they class as wild birds?..........Blackbirds, Sparrows, Robins?

    I think in theory any wild bird....but it's really the migratory birds we have to worry about!
