..THEN realize, run wire to big contain chicks, CRAP. Hmmmmm
I got a chuckle out of that Aart. Been there, done that. I have the same problem with my electric netting, the chicks can go through it until they are maybe seven weeks old so I keep them in the grow-out pen after they are out of the brooder for a few weeks. It’s always something. Broody hens raising the chicks with the flock are another issue. I trust to luck with them.
I put chicken wire around the base of my main run to contain the chicks. Think a bit like an apron to make sure they don’t go under. And watch your gates.
Yeah, haha :-P :D not sure what I'll do.......
I really don't want to line the big run with CW, not just the work and expense but I like the birds keeping the outside trimmed.
Might have to bite the bullet and do it tho.
