    [​IMG]I'm wondering if anyone can give me a ballpark idea on fencing costs (DIY). I'd like to fence in a yard for the girls to keep them off our lanai. I've included a picture of my coop and another picture of my ideal coop.

    Thanks! [​IMG]

    I'd say 6ft tall, probably 30 feet long and wide. No need for roof, not many predators on Maui

    So you just want to keep the chickens in ? Not predators out ?

    Yes. We are lucky as we don't have raccoons, fox, etc. Our property is already fenced, so loose neighbor dogs can't get in. Goal is to keep them in their own yard so the lanai stays clean and no more holes in my yard!!

    Welcome! Ask on the Hawaii thread (I'm assuming there is one) because costs and predator issues may be very different from those of us on the mainland. We're jealous, though! Mary

    Hard to give a cost estimate unless we know exactly what and how much materials you're going to use,
    ...and even if we did not many here are going to know what those materials would cost on Maui.
    I suggest you call or got to the store and ask how much for 50 foot roll of 14 ga 2x4 welded wire fencing and a half dozen 8' cast Tposts....oh and a post hammer.
