Last summer the chickens were allowed to free range, usually when either we or the dogs were out. Foxes were the main and most effective predator, in fact the only successful predator. Over the winter we have secured them in their coop and large covered runs. For the coming summer I want to add electric netting or fencing so they have a bigger area. My husband's main concern is that using the fencing or netting will cause a problem for the dogs. The dogs are a deterrent to predation when they are out. I know other people use the netting and have other animals within its boundaries so how do you do it? Can it be a problem and how do you handle it?
