Chicken wire keeps chickens in.  It does not keep predators out as it's easy for them to chew right through chicken wire.  Please consider 1/2" hardware cloth for at least the bottom few feet of your pen.

Thanks for the info. I'm going to do the welded wire 6 feet high then go up 2 feet of hard ware cloth and burry a foot in the ground to go along with it

It is easier to use a wire skirt around the pen to stop predators from digging in.

better to use hardware cloth stronger and will keep things out that chicken wire wont.
