I'd say the best fence would be 6 feet tall heavy duty welded wire with very small openings, with a strand of electric maybe 4 inches from the ground to deter digging, and 1 strand right on the top to deter any sort of climbing/jumping. If you have naughty flying chickens, go to 8 feet. The farm I trap at has problems all the time with the hens being picked off no matter how much trapping I do. The farmer said he was going to put electric strands around the fence, but I don't know if he has yet. One year its foxes, the next coyotes, then back to foxes. He seemed miffed at me for not trapping 2 extra months, but my trapping there sucked last season, so I did not go for the 2 month nuisance permit period. Plus when I did the nuisance permit the year before I only caught 2 foxes anyway. I was rather busy in my shop and have also been battling a headache and dizziness problem and dealing with large clear globby floaters in my eyes that drive me nuts.
