Dang little escape artists. I tell ya its embarrassing to be outsmarted by chickens. First they would fly over the fence to get out of the run. So I got deer netting and covered the entire run. That worked for a week, then they figured out how to open the gate. I never used to latch it just pulled it shut and it would stay shut, well they figured that one out. So I went and put a latch on the gate. A couple weeks have gone by now. I came home today was greeted by all 17 of the little turds playing in the wife's flower beds. Obviously someone forgot to latch the gate. Went out to the pen and nope, the gate is shut and latched. Hmmmmmm I knew they couldn't dig under, how were they getting out. I herded them all back in the pen. Went around the corner where I could sit and watch them. The deer netting I bought wasn't wide enough to cover the run in one piece so I had to zip tie it together. Well over time the seam has stretched there is a hole in the netting about foot long. I watched them one by one fly up through the hole and run across the top of the netting and jump down onto the lawn.
