I just completed a standard 8x8 shed type coop and I have the little ones inside it. The walls are your basic plywood. I bought a 13x7 chain link kennel to serve as the run but it isn't up yet. I did not intend to fence in the whole coop. However, some dogs have already gnawed a hole in the corner of the coop trying to get in. One is a stray I can kill if I can get a clear shot (we live in the country with no humane shelter as an option for strays). The other is a neighbor's lab mix. My question is: has anyone ever nailed field fence around the bottom half of a coop to deter the chewing of the corners? How well did it work? I can also put up a solar powered fencer and hot-wire the coop if necessary but I am wondering about the field fence solution. Thanks in advance.
