In the Brooder
- May 11, 2010
We're building our run this week for our 4 RIR/Buckeye mix's. First, is 4' high enough. We just bought a roll of 1"x2"x48" welded wire fencing to build the run out of. Are they going to be able to fly over the top of it? The run is going to be really large and they'll be in the coop at night so I'm not really worried about predators right away. We're also thinking of the movable lightweight electric fences that use a car battery. Does anyone have a good source for them? What type of posts are good to use? We were going to go with either Cedar or Locust posts non PT. I thought with the Cedar posts being in open air it wouldn't affect their lungs. Any thoughts? Our other option is the 48" T posts. Are they sturdy enough?
