Hi all, greetings from Ontario, Canada.....in the process of purchasing a hobby farm, near Markdale, Ontario. Have decided to begin my new career raising a few chickens, but having done months of research and falling in love with chickens....I think this may not be the one or two I was thinking about. I get a question in my mind and then after reading and browsing for answers, I get completely side-tracked and forget what I had originally set out looking for...lol. Of course everyone knows there are no 'stupid' questions....well, I think I may have one..... Do chickens 'urinate'..?...Honestly, have never seen anyone write about it.....and, of all the plans I have seen, is it ok to put chicken wire, hardware cloth, etc on the 'bottom' of their run.....to make it predator proof...nothing can dig under and the grass etc grows through the wire, they can get at bugs etc. Thank you everyone....and I'm very excited about getting started.....!!
