What does it take to keep a chicken in the coop?
Ah, the lovey Cleo. She's one crafty chick and can escape from any confined environment.
Really this is getting crazy. I cannot figure out how she, and only she, keeps getting out of my chicken wire, black mesh, Fort Knox of chicken runs. I've seen her dig under and put a stop to that with bricks. I've seen her jump on the coop and leap over the fence, so I put a top on the run. But now I have no idea how Houdini chicken is getting out.
So, does anyone have suggestions on how to keep a determined hen out of my garden? So far, she's mostly chomping on weeds, but once those are gone, she's gonna start eating veggies again.
