    That wire is kinda large. You'd be surprised what predators can get thru that. Might want to consider some 1/2 inch hardware cloth. What did you make the boxes out of? The chickies are cute. :)

    It DOES look great, and I agree I'd replace the chicken wire with hardware cloth. You've got lots of airflow and shade. Good luck with your chickies.

    Looking good! The poultry wire will stop most predators. I might put a couple feet of hardware cloth wire around the bottom of the sides for some peace of mind.
