Should I bury part of the chicken wire in my run or not? The run cannot be connected to the coop and they won't be out there that long because I am planning to free range them most of the time when they are older. The run would just be to contain them if we have friends over or when they are little. But I am worried some animal is going to slip under the run, which will have chicken wire as the walls. Is that possible? I thought most chicken predators were nocternal(exept for the hawk). We'll have a deer net roof to protect against the hawks. Also if I do bury it how deep should I bury it?
