How do you fox proof a chicken run? About a week ago I saw a red fox going into the woods. Last night while going out to the barn I saw a rabbit run out to the tree edge were a commotion went on and I heard some squealing. I figure the fox got a rabbit. I am concerned over the chicken safety. They are in a run all day and night. At night they are locked into the barn. I have 2x4 wire around the outside with chicken wire down in the dirt about 6" and up the side of the 2x4 fence about 24". Along the top of the dirt I have some rocks pilled. The top is covered with 2x4 welded wire. The eves of the barn are closed and I have 1/2" wire over the windows. Is there anything else I can do ? I am going to run a line of electric from the pasture fence over to the chicken area and run two lines of electric wire with a ground wire between them.
