In the Brooder
- Apr 17, 2011
I have almost finished my run. I have my birds in a 10x10x6 dog run. I have placed a 2ft welded wire apron all around the base. I have covered the top with chicken wire. I am worried about a racoon or other animal reaching through the chain link fence and grabbing a bird. I am not sure what to put up to deter this...I want to us someing that is 2 or 3ft high. Is 1/4in poultry netting good enough? Can I use some other plastic/vinyl fencing? Would 1in chicken wire work? I dont want to use hardware cloth unless its a needed for sure. This whole thing is getting $$$$. I will use it if thats all that will work. Thanks in advance for your response.
