I'm looking into cost-effective fencing for my woodline. Main priority: Keeping chickens from going into the woods. Problems: I have indor/outdoor cats that like hunting in the woods. I need them to easily be able to come and go. Another problem, my chickens have started FOLLOWING my cats into the woods. Not very far, but I don't like it. If I put up fencing along the woodline- this is my first idea. But that is one long fence... What is the most cost-effective way to do it? Is ther an alternative? (I won't be building or expanding runs until next year.) What about predators? And deer? I usually get deer in my yard, and I like that. It's nice to watch the young ones grow and families be made. I guess this is a case where I can't have my cake and eat it too, but what is the right approach? Do I put up a fence? Are there other options?
