I am planning on reinforcing the inside walls of the chain link with either 1 in chicken wire, or hardware cloth, but only about 2 feet up the walls, to save $. Will that be safe? The flock will be secured in the coop at night, which is predator proof, so it they will only be in the run during daylight. I figure nothing (coon or the like) would be able to reach their nasty little arms up and over the hardware cloth wall at that height. This is my first coop & run, so please tell me if I am wrong...I want my girls to be safe, but don't have the $ to build them Alcatraz Any thought would be appreciated! Thanks in advance!!
