    Anyone have pics of their kennel setups? I have 2 extra kennels and im trying to think of how to use them for the chickens and how to predator proof?

    I attached mine to the coop at one end and dug in railroad ties under them and fastened the kennel sections to the ties on the bottom, I ran a rope lengthwise down the center and draped 2" mesh over the top to keep chickens in and raptors out.

    Wire on entire floor and roof, all wired ends and sand in the run, works great no problems at all.
