    Well, it's cute, but definitely not predator proof.

    I would assume he is talking about the run. That is some pretty big openings in the wire!

    I have panels on some of my runs. They are lined with chicken wire to keep them in. I use it for baby chicks.

    ya my fence has chicken wire around it so it is sturdy and safe [​IMG]
    but i dont even let my chickens go out there at night. if you see on the picture above the chickens door there is a mettel panel that slides down whenever i take out the pin below it. so yes, it is definatly pradetor proof.

    Yes, SHE, Shellie was referring to the large goat fencing and chicken wire. [​IMG] My dog would tear that apart in 15 minutes flat. Plus, there's no netting on top. We've got loads of hawks here. Probably just as many owls too.

    But I like the coop and run, it's very nice.
