We have a 6' x 12" chain link dog kennel that is 6' tall with no top. It has a full size swing gate on half of one end. We would like to turn this into a chicken coop & are looking for input on some type of cover / roof plus what we need to do to make it more predator proof. I have read some of the suggestions on here. I have an electric fence charger that I could use to put up a hot wire, I suppose around the outside perimeter? I also read something about using hardware cloth around the bottom as chain link isn't sufficient to keep some things out. Any advice is appreciated. We are looking forward to getting this coop ready & some chickens laying!
