Having created our chicken run by bisecting our garden with netting on bamboo poles we had to be watchful when the weather turned bad, particularly if it was windy. We had to go round once or twice a day resurrecting the bamboo poles. Placing a couple of these corner poles in the line for reinforcment has transformed the run. We have had some nasty storms here in the welsh marches but the poles have coped with the stress very well, they wil give a little at the top but the main section is very sturdy and we have no fear of the chickens being blown away!
Does as it should
