My Neighbors chicken were disturbing me as the cackled and destroyed my trash in search of some grubs so I decided to show them who''s the BOSS.
Step 1: Gathering the Gang
- Threaded rope
- Nails with big heads
- Sawblade or Razor
- Some random wood.
I had most of these so I spent roughly half a dollar on the rope.
Step 2: Prepare the Wood
Cut the wood about 3 feet and drive the nails spacing about an inch
Step 3: Preparing the Ground
Dig about one foot into the ground with the trowel and put the sticks, then put in some rocks and fill back with soil.
Step 4: Run the Rope
Run the rope round the nail heads, making sure to secure firmly in a horizontal formation first, as many times as possible, then go zigzag.
Step 5: Optional
You may add this guy if you have him around, he wont make much difference if your structure is firmly secured .
Step 6: Angry Birds.........I Made It.
Now my trash can lie in peace, till disposal time.
n.b I decided against using chicken mesh as , this is a humid area and unless I use galvanised it wont last.
