    The A frame looks good. Just for info----"chicken" wire will hold the chickens in but will not keep alot of the predators out. Hope you do not have any stray dogs, raccoons, possums, coyote's etc around your place. I got a chicken tractor that has chicken wire on it---after a attack which I lost several chickens I wrapped it with 2"x4" welded wire over the chicken wire and for a few years now--- no problem with it. Good Luck

    This picture from my neighbor's run. They have chicken wire over chain link. You can see the hole the predator left as the pulled up the chicken wire.

    I haven't had and real issue with predators. My old run was just chicken wire and I didn't have any issues. Let's hope that luck keeps up. I'll probably re enforce it with welded wire a little at a time
