I have been wanting to let my chickens free range again for a while now but the goats would not leave the chicken feed alone, so we had to come up with something to keep them out. Aarron decided he would put a fence up between the goats and the chicken coop.
Aarron is wonderful at getting scrap from people around here that are getting rid of things. He got these panels and tubing from around the area and made them so that they would work to put a fence up in the back yard to keep the goats separate from the chickens but allowing the chickens to free range.
He had to repair the panels that he got from a neighbor but after putting in a bit of work on them, they are ready to move to the back to create the fence. He also made the gate from a pool fence gate and attached it to some poles to make the gate to get between the yards.
Aarron got the fence all put together last night and as you can see it still needs some work because the goats figured out very early that they can crawl under the fence. lol. So there will be a little more tweeking to make the fence work the way we want it to.
We need to add another pole to the bottom of the fence or add a smaller mesh of some kind to the bottom. Either way, it’s going to take another day or two to make sure the goats can’t get to the chicken feed. However, we are on the way.
Have a great day!
