It has been up for 2 weeks now... I do have a lot of extra poultry netting I could use. Actually, part of the pen is the inside of an old greenhouse, I could probably give them that (no roof, so it's like a pen with walls.) And the chickens the fenced in part. Ticks are bad this year though so we are working on fencing off the "yard" part of the property with poultry netting so we can free range the birds... it's disspointing to learn that they may not be able to free range together.
