I know chicken wire is useless, but is it OK to use if the chickens are kept in the coop at night? We Definitely have predators here, so I was never planning on leaving them outside at night anyways. The only reason we're having a run is b/c we can't let them free-range where we are, and b/c we want to keep hawks out (wire will be over top). The only diurnal possible predator that I know we have are groundhogs, but they're mostly herbaceous and have my garden to eat. I don't think they'd go after chickens.
