    Our current coop is fenced in with 1"x4" welded wire fencing, wrapped with chicken wire. 2 sides of the run are in our llama pasture, 1 side is shared by our dog run, and one side faces the yard.

    I'm planning on building a 2nd coop and run. If this coop is completely in our llama pasture can I get a way with just using chicken wire for the run? I haven't seen anything try to get into the llama area, so I'm thinking the hens would be ok. Any thoughts?

    Llamas are protective animals so I think chicken wire would be fine.

    Thanks! I thought that too, but wanted to make sure.

    BTW love your screen name. My son is always telling me that, my chickens are cuter than your chickens. Funny thing is they're all the same chickens!!

    No we don't have prairie dogs here. We're at about 8500 ft. We do have chipmunks, mice, and squirrels. They don't come around much anymore after we got an awesome mouser!!!!

    I would assume the worse could happen and I'm not fond of chicken wire because it is so flimsy....but of course I have the "Tim Allen Syndrome" ggggrrrrrrrrr bigger, better, faster, more power and I tend to over build. Good Luck
