Dog Proof Coop
Hi all. About six years ago I had a mess of chickens, then we moved to the city (they were given to another local farmer who could use them). We have since moved again and are able to have hens here.
The problem: I have since adopted a dog with a high prey instinct. We had an average coop with a few hens and she destroyed it to get to the hens. She is part pit bull and part boxer. Beautiful and sweet, but I really need to be able to keep her away from the chickens. (We have two other dogs, but they were ok with the first coop.)
Does anyone have links to coop plans that will keep doggies like her out? I’m starting to think I need a chain link fence sunk three foot down, instead of the chicken wire. Thoughts?
