It would be nice to have a
portable chicken yard to keep your
chickens from running into
Although it doesn’t mean the yard itself would be
100% safe. Possums or other varmints climb;
snakes can pass through; hawks can come down from above.. You'll still need to let your hens go into the coop at night.
And a portable garden fence to
keep your chickens away
from vulnerable plants and veggies.
How it works
2. Three 12" stakes hammered into the ground secure the base. Stakes are included. The posts are 48" in length, of pine, carefully stained and rot resistant. Shipped unassembled - all parts are included for easy reassembly.
** We don't use "treated" wood. Safe for chickens
and organic gardening..
3. Some predators can dig under any fence,
especially if there is a gap underneath,
to encourage them to start digging. That's why we don't recommend this type of fencing for bare ground or a rocky, uneven surface. We've found that welded wire can be pushed deep into the grass, so there won't be a gap.

1. We don't tightly attach the wire to the posts - just a swiveling block works perfectly. This makes the whole thing easily movable.
We only charge $60 to ship the fence posts (due to the costs) and would have to charge even more in order to ship the welded wire along with it (on the order of $150 dollars), but we discovered that Tractor Supply sells wire for $58.99.
So if youbuy your own wire at Tractor Supply locally, the total cost would only be:
