Poultry farmers are faced with the same challenges as organic growers. Like gardeners and crop farmers, they need to protect their flock from wildlife encounters such as coyotes, foxes and wolves.
When farmers think of fencing, they immediately think of a hexagonal shaped fence that is made from galvanized steel. This is affectionately referred to as a 'chicken fence' because of its use to protect chickens. Having a hex fence is the best method for chicken management on farms and will protect chickens, turkeys and other flock members from a 'pack attack.'
Include PVC on the steel hexagon fence for even more protection against chew marks.
