Thanks. I'll try and contain them for a bit in a run and see how it goes. I don't have much of a record with confining poultry, on the whole!

A friend of mine shoots, and takes them to his game dealer for plucking and dressing. I think he charges a fiver for a goose (it's three pounds for a chicken, but he wouldn't let me pay for the two I ...

It's not far. 5m, maybe 10, depending on how I set it up. And I've got flipping armoured cable all over the place. (I'm forever running over it with the mower. It's not live, but it fouls up the mower ...
