^^^Here's another picture, better angle. The entire roof over the run is covered in hardware cloth, 2x4. The next pictures show why: ^^^yep that's a cooper's hawk on our roof, eyeing the girls. I think it was a juvenile, there was no way he could get in. Hopped down and walked around looking for a weakness, found none since we have fort chicken. Looking again, our run is more like 150 sq ft. The coop is 8 feet wide, but the run flares out to 12 feet wide on the side away from the coop, and it is 12 feet away, and the girls can go under the coop also. It's 2 ft off the ground. Thanks for the compliments on our coop, we love how it turned out also. Did a lot of planning and a lot of research. Got a lot of info from this site, and the public library.
