I'm looking into the future to try to find some economical/but safe ways to make a run for my chickens. I currently have a run with hardware cloth and lumber - but it is very expensive. And it looks awful. For those who use dog runs made of cyclone fencing - how has it been predator wise? I know raccoons can reach through, do you protect the bottom few feet with a smaller mesh, or just run a hot line? Has anything gotten your chickens? How did you enclose the top? Ideally I would like to have an 8X8 coop with two 12X8 runs, one on each side. Predators in the area: dogs, coyotes, fox, birds of prey, cats, raccoons, skunks. No weasels that I know of, no large cats and thank god no bears!
