We added a little security to the chicken run this weekend. We have seen a hawk, a couple of owls and an eagle checking out our ladies lately. So we decided it was time to cover the chicken run. The only problem was I thought that would be very ugly. So after much discussion we decided to try using fishing line to make an invisible top of the run. Hopefully this will keep any sky diving predators out. Look very closely you can see the lines.
We had a couple other reasons for increasing the security too. My beautiful Bluebell seems to be an escape artist. She is often seen flying the coop. So hopefully my fishing line will keep my favorite blue hen safe inside the run!
Do you remember those wild teenagers?
My other reason for added security was to keep those rowdy teens out of my flower box. We added a low run of fishing line to help keep the teens from being able to jump up to my flower box!
My fingers are crossed! I sure hope this works!
