As with coops the huge choice of options available for chicken runs and fencing means you are sure to find something that suits your needs perfectly. From Walk In Chicken Runs to making your own using chicken wire the possibilities are endless, but do they all perform when faced against Mr Fox?
The Omlet Chicken Fencing allows your hens to explore a little more of your garden but keeps them out of the flower beds
Benefits Of A Secure And Defined Run
If your garden is completely fenced off and secure then you may be considering giving your chickens free roam of the garden. Whilst your chickens are sure to enjoy this freedom there are some key benefits to dedicating a fenced off portion of your garden to your chickens.
To Protect Your Chickens From Poisonous Plants
Your average garden is likely to contain at least a few varieties of plants that are poisonous to chickens. For a list of plants that are poisonous to chickens click here.

To Protect Your Chickens From Predators
Some chicken runs such as our Eglu Runs and our Walk In Chicken Runs are designed to prevent predators such as Foxes or Badgers being able to tunnel underneath them or climb into them. These runs have a highly durable wire mesh skirting and are totally covered.

To Protect Your Garden
Chickens who are allowed to roam free throughout your garden will cause significant damage over time. They will dig up lawns and flower beds, and eat any plants that they like the taste of.

A Peace Of Mind
Having your chickens in a secure run gives you real peace of mind. Even the most vigilant among us may not close a gate properly once in a while and an escaped chicken can be a real pain to track down.

The Chicken fencing is not at all Fox proof - I lost 2 hens through this fencing. I luckily was home in time to scare off the fox before it had all of my hens. The fox never broke through the fencing as such, but he chewed a hole big enough to get his head in and behead my poor dears. I no longer use this fencing at all when I am not around. I advise never using this netting when not under direct supervision.

Could you please tell me, how fox proof is the chicken fencing? If I bought some, it would be in a field near their coop and far from the house, out of view. I don't want to have electric fencing. Thanks!
