Ok....I have a question. We are building our run....our coop is almost done. I know in building my coop we need to use 1/2 inch hardware cloth on any openings for security. I am planning on locking the chickens in the coop every night. Does the run need to have the same treatment? My husband thinks doing the run in 1/2 hardware cloth is over kill. I just want to keep my girls safe. The run is going to have a roof,.

What do you mean by using hardware cloth for openings?

I think if the run has a roof they'll be fine.
