    Ok I got great advice on my coop from you guys now I have the run I got chain link fence which after reading it won't be good predators can get through the links.. What would be good to wrap around , the chicken wire is to hard to work with.. Also what do you use for flooring inside coop and in run.. Thanks...

    My Coop
    Wood shavings for floor in coop at least

    Are the chickens locked into a coop at night or is the chain link fence the only barrier at the moment?

    Right now they are in a temporary coop with a small run..i lock them up at night.. Thats why i cant wait to get them in new coop. I have pine shavings inside and sand outside but the sand stinks even though i clean it all the time.. Is there something better? Thanks
