I have a fenced area that measures 12'x21'. The fence is only 4' high, and my coop stands at about 7'. So if I added a cover, there would be the coop it had to go over. Plus a small tree that I would have to cut the wire to go around. It is close to one side of the fenced area, so I figured I would cut a slit from the side and just staple the wire to the tree and tie it closed back onto the fence. So my question is this.. if I pulled the chicken wire tight, would it still slope in the middle of the pen with no support? I dont mind bending over to clean the run. I could stand by the coop to clean it out, so no big deal there. I just want yalls opinion on whether or not you thought that in the middle of the run, the wire would cave in. Is there a better option to use other than wire? I live in GA so not much snow, but we do get ice at least once a year. If I should support it, what would be the cheapest best way to do that? I was also going to cover the half that has the coop with a tarp so the girls can still come out when its raining. Any advice would be great! Thanks!
