My DH and I are having trouble deciding the best way to build a run. Mine is more along the lines of Ft Knox where his isn't. I'd like to frame it w/wood and then use some type of field fence for the bottom 3 ft of the run. then chicken wire for the top 3ft and the roof. He hates working w/chicken wire. Do any of you have suggestions on something else to use? Something that isn't too expensive? Also instead of using some type of fencing as the cover/roof of the coop, DH was thinking of using string or wire to create a criss-cross pattern. His thought being the hawks would have trouble judging between the spaces and wouldn't try to fly in to eat the chickens. Any advise please?
