last night I awoke to hear a strange banging noise.... I went outside to see 4 large dogs in the process of ripping the wire off the front of the chicken coop. I chased them off... and went to inspect the damage.. fearing they had got in and killed some birds.... I was very happy to see all the chickens snoozing up on the roosts like nothing was happening! And the group of pullets snuggled on the floor. The dogs have pulled and bitten a big panel of thick strong wire.. and they were moments from getting in.. because they pulled the wire from the frame in 2 places and there are huge gaps that they could fit through. I was so lucky I woke up in time. So now what do I do? replace the wire.. will several layers of it make it stronger? its a thick green colour coated welded mesh. Or get some chain link fence to put around the bottom half of the coop and run? This is our new house and we are having a lot of dogs come onto our land.. they are fighting each other and mating with bitches on heat.. and peeing up all the house doors and windows!
