    Welcome to BYC, Wendi. Glad you decided to our flock. Your coop/run is looking very nice, but if you have any predators in your area (such as rats, weasels, snakes, etc.), I would suggest covering your run with hardware cloth as those predators can squeeze through the large openings in your mesh. Also, predators like raccoons and cats will reach through those openings and grab your chickens. Hardware cloth has saved many chicken owners a lot of tears. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your flock.
