Picket fence, spacing between posts


In the Brooder
Jan 2, 2016

I've been reading up on the forum for months and the wife and I are getting ready to get our first chickens, 6 large breed hens in the spring (buff orpingtons). During the winters we're going to let the girls into the garden and are installing a 6' high picket fence. The gaps between the posts will be 3.7 inches, is that narrow enough to keep the girls in once full grown or do I have to worry they can squeeze thru?

Looking forward to being a part of the chicken owner community and thanks for your help!
