    this is our 16 foot of take down fence.( we take it down as needed, then screw it back up when done. ) that's 6 Ft cedar, with 6 ft 4 x4 NOT cemented in, we used 2 ft long Spike Driven in then bolted to base of 4x4 STRONG and best for our WA location
    Rest of fence is tripled. layered : 4 x4 beams with Cedar boards, Horse Fence wire and 3 Rail 2 x 4
    Then is Hardware Cloth the Runs are made with.

    Just a good rooster helping his hen pick a place to lay an egg. If you pay attention there is a certain sound they make when calling a hen to a nesting site.

    ~~TOO funny for him anyhow :) its always been HIM first, food or treats sunny spots and when something scared them he'd be running all over to get in coop first. and Now My last Boy Crowing up . Found 2 eggs in same nest this Am. [​IMG] both looked like same hens. Only other hen laying eggs look different.
