    Im new to poultry and i have an idea on a coop. It uses a 12-foot white wire storage shelf and would be 3 feet off the ground and will have a A-frame structure but its right next to a fence bordering a pasture with coyotes. There is a small hole in the fence but will soon be filled. I plan on raising bantams. (the cheap starter kind [​IMG] The runs will be 2 feet tall and half cylinder garden wire. Thanks in advance:)

    Design it to fit your needs but I'd make darn sure that hole is patched and the coop & run is 100% prediator proof. If coyotes are regulars in the area you can bet they will want to wine & dine on your bantams!!
