Ok, so we are going to be building our coop this weekend and DH wants to build it open to the run. No way to close it off at all. He wants to make the coop the main entrance into the chicken area. So we would walk into the coop, and have boxes and such, and then turn to the right and walk out into the run. He says he will put chicken wire or something on top of the fenced in run so it can keep predators out. I'm nervous. I mean, we are in Texas, but I'm still worried that it might get too cold? Anyone have pics or experience with doing it this way??
