DH and I are making a day run for when we aren't around during the day or my neighbor comes late to close up the coop. We have fox, hawks, owls, and raccoons as our main predators, and the occasional stray dog. Not too worried about raccoons since they are nocturnal. I'm sure we have weasels too -- anyone know if these are nocturnal? Our plan is to use livestock fencing (is this the same thing as welded wire fencing I've been seeing others talk about?) and add'l 1" chicken wire as an apron along the bottom to keep young chicks in once they are old enough to go out. We will either bury the livestock fence or the chix wire underground and away from the run. My big question is what gauge wire we should be looking for? Anything I'm missing? This is our first foray into chix They have been free ranging all summer but it's time to build a run. It will also have a metal roof section AT&T cheddar to the coop so they have solid and secure coverage from our NH snow. Thanks!
