    Well....I dont usually like to brag...but..I just have to tell you all.
    I was listening to the radio Swap Shop...when someone came on and said they had some fencing for I called him. He said he has 4 or 5 Panels of chain link, from a dog kennel....and a couple of rolls of 7 ft Chain link...and that IF i was interested, I could have it all for $60.00.
    Of course...I said yes, and when we got there.....Ohhhh I was like a kid at Christmas. There was a WHOLE lot more.! There is about 200 ft of 7ft high chain link, about 100 ft of 6 ft......and 7 or 8 panels thats are about 6 x 10!


    We are redoing ALL of the chicken yards in this...and topping it with the chicken wire fencing.
    The buffs and Ameracaunas keep flyin out, over thier already 6 ft high fence! I am sooo excited! Thanks for listening.

    as a yard saler, freecycler, auction goer, and overall looking for deals all the time....You scored BIG TIME!

    By the way...have you checked if you have a local freecycle?
    It's a simple forum to offer, or ask for free items. A great way to keep things out of landfills.

    I love freecycle. When I bought my farm, it had been let go and junk everywhere. My barn and coop was filled with old hay that had been there for at least 7 years. I joined freecycle and one day some one posted wanting old hay for an organic nursery. I replied, he was overjoyed at his find where I only saw tons of work. He cleaned everything up, straightened up my coop and left it where I only needed to add feed, water and chickens.
    Today, he is delivering a used refridge to keep my raw food for the dogs in that he listed.
    As the saying goes- one man's trash is another man's treasure
