So my chickens have a small coop with a small run. They get to be out every day all day. But they are tearing my yard up. I mean digging a million holes and generally driving us all insane. It is a chicken wasteland. So I want to put two stretches of fence, connecting to the house and the existing safety fence around our pool. I don't need this fence to keep anything out, just chickens in. And if they get out it is not the end of the world, I'm just trying to define their area. (which will still be huge, we just want to take back some of our yard and patio) I'm thinking then it doesn't really matter what material I use, I have some of the plastic chicken "wire" stuff that used to be on my coop, which I replaced. I like the idea of that because my kids won't be hurt by the raw edges. I'm looking for ideas. I need easy and cheap. Doesn't really need a door, the pool fence thing has several access points so I can use that. What do you use for fence posts? I mean so it is not all floppy... Will the chickens themselves dig under a fence? Do your chickens tear up your yard so much? I had visions of them selecting a spot for the dust baths and sort of scratching some. It is a WASTELAND back there. I think my husband is going to eat my chickens if I cannot solve this problem.
