All Our Units Are Fox Proof - Here's Why!!!
We ensure that all the units we produce are fox proof and with good reason! Foxes are the biggest predator of chickens in the United Kingdom.
If a fox gains access to a run or coop then they will generally kill as many birds as possible in a mad frenzy, they usually gain access by digging around and squeezing underneath a fence or by climbing/jumping over the top of a fence.
Fences around a run should be buried at atleast 10" with wire curled flat outwards by a further 10".
Contrary to some theories, a fox can very easily leap over a 5 foot fence, and even if they couldn't - they can still gain access by biting through rabbit wire with their teeth.
This is why we ensure our units are all fox proof - it's much better to be safe than sorry!
