Am I making a mistake making it 5'?
Depends. Is it going to be be covered at all? What breeds?
That depends on how tall you are. If you want to walk under it.
It won't have a top
I'm going to have Easter Eggers in it
Easter Eggers are escape artists and will easily clear fences 10 feet tall. I breed them. Unless you are willing to free range them, a covered run or clipped wings are a must.
I was going to clip their wings
You will also need to make sure they can't squeeze under the fencing either.
I was going to sink the wire down in the ground.
Area I am fencing off is between the coop and the shed. I figured that would give them a lot of room.
Chickens can easily fly over a 5' fence but unless you have some very flighty birds they most likely won't. Clipping the wings should be fine if you're concerned about them ending up in the street or a neighbor's yard.
