    Creating a new Chicken coop and Pen area . Has anyone had luck with chainlink or horse fence . I dont have issues with nightime predators due to my babies get locked in there coop at night . It will be covered with nylon netting to keep the hawks from swooping down and getting anyone. Looking do 6ft fence , 25x25ft pen with a small section covered with shade cloth to keep some shaded area . Looking to start setting post soon , Just looking for everyone info on it .

    As long as they have sufficient shade, that should do fine.
