    ok so for the run we want to make it very big and we will have 4 ft tall hardware and then about a 1 or 2 foot gap with aviary netting over the gap. can you picture what im describing? so does that sound predator proof enough because the chicken will sleep in the very secure coop?

    netting will keep out most flying preds, but nothing else. I would be sure to lock them in the coop at night. thats what dh and I do and so far works well for us.

    If you are faithful about shutting them in every night, then it should be fairly secure...
