This is my first post. I've spent an hour or so searching on this forum for the answer to this question with no luck, so I figured I would register and post. If the question has been specifically answered, please direct me. I am planning to get about 10 chicks and keep them in a 8x6 shed which I will convert to a coop. I'm thinking about creating a fencing situation around the coop in which the chicks could hop over it and free-range but at the same time, generally keep out neighborhood dogs which roam freely during the day. Is this possible? What height/type would be ideal? Could the chicks hop back over the fence when they feel threatened? Am I way off base here? Thanks and please forgive my newbi-ness.
