Chicken wire ground attachment

A potential escape spot in any chicken fence is where the ground meets the wire.

I like using old logs that are way past the point of firewood. Sometimes I'll lay them on top of the wire and other times it works out better to have the log on the bottom depending on if there's any slope to deal with.

Old boards from the broken down house worked as the same function, but you don't get the bugs and worms that come along with a punky log.
