Don't Fence Me In!

Is the grass greener on the other side?

Is the grass greener on the other side?

We’re constructing a fence to keep our birds from grazing on our neighbor’s field. They just discovered the tasty grasses and things there! They’re not bad birds, but they do need some structure in their lives. Several hundred feet of structure.


They are, thankfully, not complaining. They seem to remember that the fields they used to enjoy aren’t so bad. Here’s a picture of the fence going in by our driveway. See our truck? Look nearby and you’ll see Scuttle the rooster helping to corral one of the more determined hens.

The wood is coming from the trees we are thinning, and would have otherwise been composted. We are preventing fire risk by ensuring adequate fire block on either side, and not stacking the wood high. The wild animals will be able to get through, over and around. It presents a visual reminder for our domesticated animals where our property line is. They are very familiar with territory, and like to stay within our territory: our protection and food is best!

Deer fencing is a great alternative dog fence choice for the discerning dog owner. More humane than an electric fence plus cost effective.
