I have decided that the chicken run that I built this spring is not quite big enough for my 8 birds. It is 16ft x 12ft and is 8ft tall. I am new to the game and at the time needed something bigger than what I had for the chicks. It works. They love it, but I feel like I want to add more area to it. I can’t let them completely free range, my dogs would probably kill them all. The lady that had the house before me may have had chickens or something as there is a fenced in area not to far from my current run. I didn’t use it originally because it is in need of some work. Her fence appears to be some 2”x3” no climb fencing about 3 ft tall, then above that she has som chicken wire. It looks like the fence is about 5-5.5 ft tall. How high would you go to keep the chickens from jumping the fence? it is also in an area of my property that has a lot of trees. How high up would you trim branches to stop them from climbing to high? I plan on cleaning this all up and such so please don’t mind the mess. The fence is hard to see in the pictures. Red line is top of chicken wire and the fence, blue is top of the no climb. She even has carpet down on the grown for some reason. I am not sure this was for chickens but maybe...?
