    That looks wonderful.

    But, where do you live? Are there no racoons, skunks, possum, fox or other preditors? Even neighbors dogs? With chicken wire only you have set yourself up for something getting into your run. It happened to me and it was up and over for the racoon in the only weak spot in the top of the covered run....and it was not even chicken wire. You did a wonderful job building it but to keep your chickens safe from something getting in it is going to take welded wire.....hardware cloth. Chicken wire is simple for a determined animal to get into. There are many of us on here who have learned our lesson the hard way!

    It would be pretty hard for something to get in. Its doubled up and goes from the bottom up over the top.
