Hi All, We have 6 1 weekish old chicks in the brooder, and they'll be there until probably 5 or 6 weeks old. This weekend's project is starting coop and run assembly/construction. My husband will be using this plan for the run: http://www.ana-white.com/2012/06/plans/chicken-coop-run-shed-coop We have a pre-fab coop which we've been "beefing up" with caulking, liquid nails, extra paint, etc. (We might have to build an addition because we had to get 6 chicks instead of our planned 4, but that's a topic for later...) My husband asked me to ask you all which would be better for the run only: 1" hex chicken wire -OR- 2"x4" welded wire? I told him likely chicken wire, but that I'd put the question to all of you far more experienced chicken lovers. Thanks!
