We are building a 15' x 20' outdoor chicken run for our 4 chickens. We live in mn and have weasels, raccoons ,skunks, fox hawks, eagles and owls all as predators in our area. I have been researching some of the forums in regards to other peoples ideas for construction on their chicken runs. Most have suggested using hardware cloth and not using poultry fence. Well my problem is the cost for the hardware cloth. The expense to outfit the entire run with this would be quite expensive. I am wondering if it would be possible to first outline the entire run with the poultry fence and then use chain link fence over it. And if need be another layer of poultry fence? Inside their run will also be their coop so they will have a place to retreat to in need be. Just trying to save some on the cost and actually have tons of chain link fence laying around waiting to be used. Does anyone have any experience on this and do you think this will work and or be good enough? Thanks.
