    Even just leaning up there its probably better than mine. I used the cast iron t-posts and chain link fencing zip tied to it. The fence is 6ft tall amd the posts ended up at 5 ft. I've heard that because its not supported at the top and its kinda wiggly it will help deter critters from climbing it cause it'll be difficult. So far so good.

    Ohhhh good, just need the chickens to stay in. Not trying to keep the critters out. That is why I have my Oly girl, the pitbull. She does just fine protecting her flock.

    Are you planning on covering it? If you want the chickens to stay in it would be a good idea.

    If you're not covering it than you'll need to do something cause chickens have wings and can fly :lol:

    I think clipping wings would be easiest!! I have the tool to use but haven't done it cause I didn't need to.

    I would offer advice on it but ain't got a clue. Although something to think about it may hinder there ability to quickly evade predators.
