Hi, I just got 5 pullets and a coop. This is my first time with chickens. We have a lot of fox and hawks in our area so we are trying to protect the girls but still give them some time to peck a round. We want to electrify a run but I am not sure how to handle the gate. We have looked at the 4 foot net fence with electrified tape and the 6 foot hard mesh fence. Any ideas on what is best and also how to handle an entryway into the pen? Anything we came up with seems to make the pen vulnerable.
