Looking for someone to build a hen run

I am looking for someone
To dismantle my old hem run and
Build a enclosed run fox proof
And with a door so I can get into it
And put my hen house into it.

Location: Offaly

Some people offering things like that on Facebook marketplace or some garden shed manufacturers will do things like that. Some people offer to dismantle and clean up and some other one will build one

Did you get sorted? How big do you need the run?

No not sorted yet I have a run but it needs to be redone as wood is rotting after 15 years. So would like to get someone to take the wire down and redo the run by using wire that little birds can't get into and as the big posts seem ok to use them as a guide. Want to extend it to fit house and small run so maybe a run that's large enough to have 12 hens running around and enclosed so no fox can get in.

Might keep the door I have and recyle it. If you know someone let me know I was thinking 300 would be my budget or push 400.

If you bought some chicken wire and perhaps a local teenager you might get it done for 300/400.
If you're looking for half inch galvanised mesh and done for any standard at all youd need to up your budget.
The materials alone would be 300 at the very least. not including labour.
Electric wire around that pen would be an alternative solution.

Thanks for the feed back I tried asking the locals but they said they are too busy and would love to do the project but with family it's hard and so need someone to do it for me I can't as I have Ms and my balance is not great. So I just have to keep looking I would push the amount if a person does the job right and I would say 2 to 3 day job max.

I bought an excellent henhouse made by my local mens shed and have heard you can approach them for know how and labour if you were putting up a large run for a very nominal fee.

I asked them but they said they don't do that sort of thing so am lost really as the locals don't know anyone and I had a great fellow but he got cancer so can't do it anymore. And as am a little bit far no one wants to take on project. As I said would bulid it my self but my Ms gets the better of me. But thanks for the info.

Contact your local Men's Shed. I'm sure they would be delighted to take this on as a project. There are even Men's Sheds that employ men in direct provision who are highly skilled carpenters to build chicken coops and runs. I think you will not be sorry to use their excellent services! Good luck!
