I'm thinking about making my run hardware cloth (weeps just a little, so much work!) and I can't possibly afford spending over $100 on it for my whole entire run. It's going to be 12x8. Yes... not an easy task. Anyone have any idea about how this is gonna happen? And if not, I think that my chickens would die, since I have to let them out by at the very latest 7 AM every morning when it's just starting to warm up and get daylight bright and apparently a raccoon could easily get to them at that point. *Sigh.* I don't think chicken wire is gonna cut it. I can replace one section of the roof about 4x8 with plywood, which would lower it to 8x8 run top that I have to cover. Is that even possible? Thanks.
