I need a new (bigger) chicken run, hopefully have some new additions on the way in the incubator. I've just had what I think is a bit of a brain wave Please could you tell me what you think- cunning plan or not a good idea... Instead of making a bigger (my current one is 10x12ft) all enclosed run from wood and wire- which was pretty expensive and a pain, my cunning plan is to use some of that plastic mesh type stuff on sticks, that way I can make a nice big area and put their chicken house in the area. Then I can move the fencing around from time to time to give them fresh ground too (they will probably also get out into the field for a few hours in the evening as they do currently. Then the existing run becomes the chick's new run. Giving me plenty of room and happy chickens. Only downside for them is they get their wings clipped as I know they can fly quite high and would clear a 4 foot fence currently. I have to go and shut their run door every evening anyway, so going down to shut them in their house wouldn't be extra work. So although the fence wouldn't be fox secure, they would be in their house which is. Any thoughts on this would be gratefully received - is it a cunning plan? if so how high should the fence be?
