    I'm building my coop and run. I noticed one of the hens can get on the coop door. This concerns me as my run fence is only 4ft high nearly a foot shorter than the door. Will my hens get out? Can they get high enough to jump the fence. Or is it more likely she found a clever way to get up on the door?

    I have a leg horn that flies over a 6ft fence. The best solution I have is using netting on the top. Good luck
