Any gap that you can fit a few fingers through, a raccoon can fit a whole arm through. They will tear a chicken to pieces if they can reach it. Make sure your flock is secured each night, inside the coop, and not left out in the run.

X2 on the above. Also, if you have weasels in your area, they can easily slip through chain link and 1 weasel can wipe out your flock in a night.

Ok. And i don't need about herding them in. They have been trained to go in the coop on there own.

Anyway.. Your suggestions have been really helpful.
Thanky.
