    ok everyone i have a problem i have a clear area out frommy barn that is about 12' x 20' and that is just a rough guess and i want to close it in where my chickens can run that area but the problem i have is everythng has to be covered with something due to hawks and owls now at night they will have access to the barn and hen house which is where they are now but i want them to get out some so i need a cheap way to close that area in and any suggestions would be great
    thanks everyone

    i thought about doingthe pvc pipe thing but it seems to me that the pipe is just about as much as boards are so now with the deer eeting idea i may do the wall that way and use the deer netting for the top hmmmm just maybe lol

    I was afraid PVC pipe would break down in the sun faster than the boards would rot - which is why I decided to go with wood.
