Well, it ain't purty, but it does the job. Between the 2 foot snow storm we had and all of the recent rains our little patch of grass has become a lovely, lush carpet. My chickens have been ogling it for days. I haven't wanted to extend their main fence to this area because it's along a nice path, then genius struck! I found a cheap snow fence and wooden stakes on Craigslist. The fence will allow the chickens out to free range, but can be dismantled in seconds if we want to get our tractor down the path. Cheap, functional, creative, temporary, I'm really hoping this does the job!
