Hello all, I've been reading here for the past 6 months for information and tips, this is a great site. I just got 12 baby chicks about 5 weeks ago. I've started to build my coop and run. I was wondering if anyone has used any type of rope or mesh netting to cover their run. Will this protect them from hawks? Should I be concerned about any other preditor coming through the top? I am using a used 10x10x6' dog kennel. I am trying to figure the best way to cover it to protect the chickens from preditors. There is also a tree inside that I will have to contend with. I love this board, I have learned a lot. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
