Hi Everyone!

We are going to have a small urban flock of 3-4 hens (buff orpingtons and black australorps). They will mostly be in their coop/run but when we are there to supervise we’ll let them out in our yard.

We have a TON of very smart raccoons and a few rats/mice etc where we live so obviously we want to make our coop and run as predator proof as possible.

We are considering putting hardware cloth on the floor of our run and then putting dirt/mulch etc on top of it. Is this a good idea?

I would also include a separate deeper dust bath inside the run as well.

Pros/cons?
