Is it ok to attach hardware cloth the the bottom of the run so dog and whatever else can't dig under it and get to the chickens? Essentially they will be walking on it

I do not think that would be the most comfortable for the chickens. They will not be able to scratch. You should put a skirt around the coop so the dog can't dig under.

I was planning on doing a similar thing, but with with a few inches of sand/mulch on top of it. Would that be ok, or should I just go with a skirt?

Thank you! In my coop build thread this was something I wondered about but didn't express my concern correctly, and this is the info I wanted.
