We're finished with the corner and gate posts for the new run (and large, attached 60'x60' garden area) and now wondering what type of fencing we should use for the run. We'll use field fence for the garden, and I was thinking of just using field fence for the extended run too, but what are the risks? We plan to let the girls out in the extended run during the day and they will go back into their coop at night. I do not plan on doing a skirt for this run, but am using concrete blocks around the outside perimeter and planting herbs and flowers in the holes of the blocks. The top will be dressed with a heavy bird netting to deter chicken hawks and eagles. Otherwise, we have a very territorial german shepherd that won't let anything close to the area during the day. Let me know your thoughts!
