From todays ES.

Hens in your garden, fresh eggs every morning.

The award winning eglu is designed to make keeping hens in
your garden easy, especially if you live in town. It is delivered
to you with a fox resistant run, beginners guide and includes
two organic hens laying 12 eggs per week, and no cockrel required.

Oldoldold. Been around for a year or so now (as one of the most expensive ways to keep chickens). Nice website, and nice iMac sheds, but IMHO a great rip off.

{I'd start with a few bits of 2 by 4, and then get Jon and TULMJJ to do the rest because they are experts on all construction tasks ;0)}

...if you press it, they will come.

it'd need to be crow proof as well for your place!

Good point Jon. And I'd want something to stop ninja drainpipe-climbing foxes as well.

Any recommendations?

I did see in the inovations catalogue just such a thing...

'are you tired of waking up in the middle of the night to the sound of a fox killing your chickens on your balcony?
Then you need the brand new, never before seen, inexpensive, 'Renard-Stop' product!
Designed by Swedish ergonomists, and German acoustitians, this device, once attached to drainpipes, will safely and securely prevent foxes from entering your secure balcony area. For full protection it is recomended that every drainpipe in a surounding area of at least five miles is covered, and it should be noted that planning permission may be required in certain cases. Some loss of hearing or building subsidence may be caused, but this is purely coincidental, and has not been proven to affect the egg laying potential of chickens on balconys.

This product is not suitable for children under 16, should be fitted by a qualified person, and is not effective against crows.'

Right. I'll get it when I order my potato ricer. Sounds like it's just what we're after. Ta.
