It depends a lot on what predators are going to want chicken for dinner.

Personally I think it is a wonderful gift. I would use it and add some welded wire on the inside to keep critters from breaking and entering.

 

Be sure to thank that friend of yours. It is a super gift!

I would go for 1/2 " hardware cloth. That will keep mice and mink/weasels out.

We have the tiniest mice here. They go right through the 1/2 by 1/2 cloth. Personally strength is important to keep the larger more damaging things out. I would use the stronger wire. But that is just me.
