So we are in the coop design phase of new chicken ownership & I want to know what the general consensus is about how deep you should bury the wire that the run will be made out of? I think it should be about 1 foot down & then angled out to keep any critters out & chickens in. The DH thinks that we just have to peel back the sod & lay down the wire so its about 1 foot away from the edge. His reasoning is that if any critter wants in that it will dig close to the edge & when it hits the wire it will give up & go away. He is also leaning towards just using chicken wire & I want something more sturdy, like 2"x3" fencing. What are your thoughts???? Thanks, this forum has been a great help already & we don't even have the new kids yet!
