The Sussex Run has been specifically designed
to fit our range of Sussex Chicken Houses. Made from the same
durable wood as all our chicken coops the run will give your
hens another 11 square feet of safe and secure space to roam.
There is a large fully opening door which allows
you access. The Sussex Run has also been fitted with a higher
grade type of wire mesh. In fact, the heavy duty wire mesh
is 50% thicker than many of the other online suppliers.
This increase in quality and thickness makes
the run more sturdy. The heavy duty wire has also been set
into the wooden framework which adds to the rigidity of the
entire run structure.
1.Can I join a single Sussex Run onto
the one I already have?
Yes, you can join as many runs together to form as long a
run as you like. It's just a matter of leaving off the square
end panel on the run that is joining the one in front. The
Sussex Run comes with all the necessary screws and instructions
to do this. It quite straight forward.
2.How does the run attach to the coop?
Special brackets are supplied
to secure it to the coop but you can just leave it pushed
up against it if it safe to do so. Some customers use these
and eye latches which allow you to secure the run to your
coop for security and then simply unhook the run if every
you need to move it.
3.Is the wood treated?
Yes, the Sussex Run comes with a base coat treatment of wood
But as with all outdoor wooden structures in our harsh climate,
we recommend that the timber be treated on a regular basis
to ensure a long life. There are many popular products available
and Wilkinson amongst the better known brands. A lot of customers
use and recommend these: Brand
Option 1 or Brand
4. How do I purchase a Double Sussex
The double Sussex Run is simply
two single runs joined together with the end panel of one
of the runs left off. If you wish to purchase the Double you
just need to order 2 x single Sussex Runs.
5. Is the Sussex Run fox proof?
We would like to think that our coops and runs are made to
a higher standard than most other suppliers in this price
range. While we have purposely used thicker, sturdier wood,
wire and locks with the aim to make it as safe and secure
as possible for your chickens we cannot absolutely guarantee
that foxes and other predators won’t try and target them.
Foxes are by far the biggest threat that your pets will
face so if you are going to keep your chickens then we also
urge you to take
these added precautions especially if you know you have
foxes in your area.

Our wooden coops and runs are treated with a base coat of
wood preservative.The wood we use in this product is a highly
durable and scented softwood which is noted for its resistance
to decay and rot.
As with all outdoor wooden structures we strongly recommend
that you treat your coop with a high quality varnish or wood
preservative before exposing it to the elements and that you
re-treat it at least once a year (preferably before the winter
season) to maintain the applied preservative and water repellent
properties. There are many popular products available with Cuprinol
and Wilkinson amongst the better known brands.
We also recommend that you try and position your chicken coop
in a protected area which is not overly exposed to high winds
and the elements.
