Poultry fencing/netting
« on: November 21, 2020, 08:43 »
Part of our garden is a 5m wide strip of land, we have the chickens on this in coop/run combo.

However I want to fence this off to stop the dog accidentally eating them and to give them more space in the day now we are home working long term. The dog is quite good and ignores them so I am not expecting problems from him. The problem is the girls are good flyers and hop 3-4 ft easily.

They are rumpless araucana which are supposed to be good flyers. They do need their wings clipping again as they are going through their first moult. After Scrags having a prolapse I just want the girls to be as strong as possible.

Any suggestions would be appreciated? I can only think electric netting or 5ft netting of a home made concoction

I mentioned a couple of good internet sites for netting and fencing on this thread.   You should be able to find something on one or the other that will do the job  :)

Unusual looking birds. They are loving their area. Nice if they can roam although not always practical as you know.
