Hello I need a little advise I am building a coop and run the run will be a 25 x 25 chain link fence it will be 6ft high is that high enough to keep out foxes. There are no trees near the run or the coop. I would rather not hook up an electric fence to it. do not want to hurt the birds that feed near the run.

6 ft fence is a walk in the park for a fox, you probably want to cover the run with a wire roof anyway to protect against hawks.

Do some reading on predators and coops before beginning your build, better to learn before than have to rebuild later!
