We have a decent sized back yard and i wanted to section off a portion for a free range area. Last summer was our first summer with our chickens and they destroyed my veggie and herb garden, some of my flower beds, and obviously pooped everywhere. I really want them to free range during the day though. I love it as much as they do. I wanted to put up a fence so their coop and run would be enclosed in their own fenced off section. The purpose of this fence is not for predators so i'm not looking to cover it. They have a solid coop and an enclosed run for when i'm not home. My husband wants to put up electric fencing to contain them. I was thinking more along the lines of the same sort of fencing material but that the electric aspect was a bit over kill. His concern is that the girls will just fly over a 4-5' fence. Won't they just fly over the electric fence too? Any advice?
