    I have four 16' cattle panels that I am going to use as the main fencing for the run. Only because these were left on the property when we bought the place.

    What is the best option and good price point, to use on the lower parts of the fence to protect the keep chickens in and pest out?

    Cattle panels are not all that tall when it comes to keeping your birds in or predators out - so the best approach, imo, is to use them to form a "hoop coop and then cover them over with smaller mesh materiel.
