Well great :) do you worry about hawks though?
I've hade a few problems but I locked them up for a week afterwards. And my two main roosters alert everyone now and they all run in the coop. The last hawk I caught in the act and my Orust male achilles was attacking the hawk while it was trying to kill a hen and it flew off so I got lucky. But these Orust Roos will die for there hens.

Now the premier one fencing was a little more expensive but worth every penny. People in the country can't seem to keep there dogs in there own yard. I had a pit bull attack three weeks ago lost 20 hens. Now I've switched all runs to electric and put electric wire around my whole pasture.

I built that coop for like 45 bucks. I had extra two by fours and plywood. I just had to buy the hard ware cloth and the metal roofing.
Oops sorry I was thinking premier one was like dog panel fencing. I have been looking at the premier one fencing What setup did you get?
