    You for sure can keep the hawks out, several other ground predators you will still have to watch out for. I had two bull dogs visit a "outside" chicken tractor with that same 2x4 welded wire over chicken wire----they tore into the pen in a few seconds and about wiped out the chickens in it before I drove up. Breaking some of the welded wire welds. I found out that chicken wire is just to keep chickens in---very few predators out. I have used it inside of my runs to keep the chickens separated. Good Luck
