Hello everyone, I am new to chicken raising so I was hoping to get some help and ideas from some experienced chicken lovers. We have seven acres of land here in Lebanon Tennessee and at one time we had an above ground pool that had a deck surrounding the whole pool. Well the pool had a blow out so now we are left with a free standing deck that is about 3-4 feet above the ground, and where the pool was we have a nice layer of sand. I thought this would be a good place to put a chicken coop and start raising layers. We have a water and electrical source in this area. I am wanting to put a fence around the bottom of the deck to protect the chickens but not sure what kind of fence I should use.
