    we are building a second place for chicekns and really want the 6ft high dog fencing panels-I can't seem to find ay good deals to save some money-anyone know who sells them at a good price-we are looking for enough to make two runs-one for each side of our new coops-one side to grow the grass while the other side is used and switch every week or so-I'm thinking 24 panels-I think the size is 8 ft x 6ft? I live in way way upstate NY-Id be willing to drive my truck to pick up-if someone wants some removed from there property-depending on how far?

    Have you tried a craigslist or a bulletin board posting?

    Have you tried Craigslist? I just sold two of them a few months ago for $50 each. I always see dog runs and kennel fencing listed in the pet section. Or you can place a free listing in the "Wanted" section.
    Good Luck!

    ETA: Looks like we posted at the same time! [​IMG]

    Never heard of it-that's why I love you guys so much!!! Ill try that tomorrow when I have more time-in the mean time my Dh knows of a house down the road with 4 panels that ave been just sitting there on the ground-Ill go right up to them and ask if they want me to "take it away" for them-or buy them if they want some $ I just dont want to spend a bundle considering the new coop is running us 400$ or more so far!

    HELLO! Just to let you know I bought a 6 x 10 kennel for $100 in Rotterdam (near Schenectady) OR I have also seen on Craigslist ads for chain link fencing rolls, then you would only have to add posts. Maybe some 6 - 8 " pine trees cut to height - saw them on a farm that used them with field fencing. Looked very nice and probably free trees. Good luck and I'll keep my eyes open for you!

    ooh you did get lucky! thats for the eye out--your right about the rolled fencing we though of that too-we are just really thinking that we want to build a resistant hard knoxx fencing-but we are looking into the logs for fencing and such-we just already had the 6 x 8 fencing -about 10 panels-so we thought to keep it the same would be best for the looks and strength-nothing has touched our birds since we put it up last fall- thank you
