    The bottom is half inch by half inch wire. Each pen has a roost that is 14" off the floor.

    one my hens has her toes bitten off from being in a pen like this when a neighbors dog got to them (before i got her) .. I suggest protecting them somehow.

    Quote:Each day (unless the weather is nasty) one pen is opened and they are allowed to roam. So for this one pen which is actually 6 units, each breed is getting to roam evey 7 days.

    Quote:Mark, When I first built this type of setup I ran electric wire around the bottom (4" off the ground and again about 2"below the bottoms) I heard a couple of coons get into it over a 4 night span, I left the juice to it for another week and have now removed all the wire. It has been 2 years now and I have not had any problems.
