I'm almost finished with fencing the yard. I have 17 chicks due by mail October 3. Checked with animal control who told me I could have 22. Now I need to build a coop and a run. Can't wait to switch from store bought eggs to backyard eggs! This is a great site!!

Thanks for the warm welcome! I saw two racoon in my backyard recently. Should I go all fort Knox and use cyclone fence or welded wire on the run? Or just make sure they're in the coop after dark? Also, I landscaped my yard with half inch gravel. Should I remove that in the run or just leave it there? Thanks!
