Hi- totally new here and having trouble hitting on the right search words to answer my question. A friend and I have 26 babies coming soon, and the brooder is ready, but we need some help with the coop, but we are unable to dig down to put the fencing underground to protect the chicks from predators. It is far too rocky- both large and small rocks all over the place. So we thought instead, we might cover the whole ground area of the enclosure with chicken wire, and stake the chicken wire down with those "u" shaped stakes so it doesn't stick up anywhere and become a hazard for people or chicks. I think this will work because it is basically the way a tractor is done, only it will be permanent. Will this be adequate to protect the chickens? Thanks!!!
