Yes, after reading Daddymchicken's post, I pulled the bottom board from the walls of my coop and fastened hardware cloth to prevent anything from trying to come through that 2-inch gap. It has been a dream to clean and with my vent in the peak of the gable I get air movement, which is a good thing.
Wish I could do that! We have one solid board running up and down. Do we'd have to cut into the wall and I think it'd be to much trouble! We actually used decking board for the floor on our coop, so there are little tiny cracks in the floor. It makes it a pain since the shaving fall through but I guess I could hose the coop out once or twice a year!
Wow! So glad I haven't had to deal with Coyotes. The window for my bedroom faces the chicken pen, one night I heard awful cackling sounds, almost like a Hyena. Sounded kind of like demons or something. Scared me to death! Figured it was just Coyotes.
