Advice needed, moving to a rural area and keeping chickens s

Post by Beemer » 28 Nov 2012, 12:12

Hi all

We're moving to N Yorkshire this week and I'm having a panic over my 5 chooks.
They currently live in an eglu with an extended run we've made ourselves, however this won't cut the mustard in our new home.

I need something which will deter the foxes and provide the girls with a safe area to roam outside of the 2m eglu run. Will an electric fence around the eglu and run suffice?

Any help or advice really appreciated.

Thanks
