What size skirt for predator proofing

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Is 16" enough? I have a bunch of 16" square concrete pavers. I figured I could create a skirt with them for predator proofing and they would serve double duty to keep the coop elevated out of the dirt. Thanks.

I live in a city suburb and have a fenced yard. No bears or coyotes, but lots of possums and neighborhood cats.

I think that would work.

I actually poured a 12 inch concrete skirt around my run (did it with quikcrete) and over the last 5 years I have found a couple spots where something has started digging and then stops about 7 or 8 inches down.

I planned to level and lay these on the perimeter, not dig down 16" to have these sitting vertically. The critter trying to get into my coop would have to start digging at the front edge of the paver, dig down a few inches under the paver, then tunnel 16" horizontally to get up into the run. Does that make sense? I was planning to use them just like most people do with a skirt of wire screening pinned to the ground.
