Now I know the obvious answer is build a fence, but my garden is very large and the fence building takes time and a lot of money. There is already a wire fence there but in places it is falling down and there are gaps. On the other side of the fence is a popular dog walking path, which obviously my hens love to get on to. They have everything they could want on this side of the fence but for some reason they love being out there. The other day I got out just in time to stop a mauling from a dog. How can I tempt them to stay this side?
