Chicken-proofing livestock panels
I made a big mistake when our livestock panels were delivered.
There are lots of different kinds of livestock panels, some with holes
the same size all over and others with various types of small holes at
the bottom. I'd ordered the ones with very little holes down low
working up to normal-sized holes halfway up the fence, but what actually
came just had two rows of medium-sized holes at the bottom then had
large holes the rest of the way up. Unfortunately, I didn't notice
the substitution until the panels were halfway unloaded, at which point
I thought it wasn't fair to complain and figured we'd work with what we
And we do get keep many
of the good qualities of the panels. I've enjoyed the way cattle
panels can be curved into any shape imaginable --- a great asset if you
have an irregularly shaped area and want to enclose every inch.
Plus, the heavy metal will keep Lucy from gnawing dog doors wherever she
wants them, and will also allow the fences to stand up to bigger
livestock if we ever get them. Finally, I especially enjoy the way
cattle panels are Anna-friendly fencing --- easy enough that I can put them up all by myself.
