    We are building a run that is 24 by 8. Our chickens will go in the coop at night but will spend the day in the run. We live in an area with many predators and want to build a secure run. We are using hardware cloth (1/2 inch). Do we have to cover the whole run in this (6 feet high)? Any help is greatly appreciated.

    A lot of folks use welded wire for the run and hardware cloth just for the vents on the actual coop.
