Hi, I'm new here and fairly new to chickens (it's been about 20 or so yrs since I've been around chickens and I'm in my 20s, lol). So, I went and got 11 chicks from the feed store. Already have a coop, got the fencing material, just need to set a day aside and build it. I know we should of gotten the run done first, but we figured with them needing to be inside for about 6 weeks it wouldn't be a big deal. The chicks are still only 5 days old. What our main concern is that we're going to have problems the a neighbor's dog. They allow their dog to run loose, which I've called AC on many times but they don't do anything but give them another ticket for the loose dog. I do know that I can legally shoot their dog when it's attacking my livestock, but I don't want to kill their dog. I'd rather deturre (sp?) it all together. I was thinking about getting barb wire to put around the run and coop, but I'm not sure how well that will work. What about regular chain link fencing? We're waiting on one neighbor to finish back filling the ground behind us that he tore up to put up a regular fence. Anyone else got any ideas? TIA.
