I have three chickens, but will be adding another three this spring. Right now on occasion I let my chicks out of their run and they explore the yard and scratch in the garden, which is fine since it's winter and I just have the leftover kale and chard in there and the chickens aren't hurting anything. I have a small back yard and a small garden (the garden is 16x8 feet). Soon I'll be planting seeds and plants in the garden and I will not want my chickens having a hay-day in there anymore. I am thinking I'll need a temporary fence that I could install right before I let them out for their occasional jaunt in the yard, but I am flummoxed about how exactly to do a temporary fence. Keeping a fence up all the time would mean extra hassle for me when I want to get to the lettuce and tomatoes... Plus it would take up some valuable space... Any ideas? Thanks!!!
