    I live in the city and have a relatively small fenced in backyard. I do have two side yards and of course a front yard. I would like to purchase a portable pasture pen for my five chickens. Would like to use them for natural fertilization, and pest control not to mention putting them in the garden in the fall. I love my husband but he nor I are very handy. Has anyone purchased a quality portable pen at least 6 feet long? Need to let the backyard rest and when they no longer are laying they will still be usefull.

    Could us use poultry netting? You can move it anywhere and set it up in any shape. If predators are an issue you can electrify it with a fence charger (solar, battery or electricity powered). I use and love them. They have their own fence posts that you just push into the ground. I also use them for my goats.

    Good luck.
