To keep critters out of the pen and the chickens in, we layed 2x4 wire about 4-6" under the dirt and extended it beyond the edges of the run, then used ripped 2x4 material (recycled lumber) to make a kick board that circles the run and coop. the under wire and the top wire are nailed together at the kick board, totally enclosing the pen in wire. The dirt is deep enough to let the birds scratch and make dirt nests but nothing can get under and into the pen.
