After losing two of our chickens yesterday to a coyote, we are getting a large, safe run built next week! Right now they have a small run that they are growing out of. We are using an old metal shed for the coop. It's about 6x15 and 8 ft tall. It nice and big and the chicken have so much room! We now have 4 but will be adding 4-8 more in time. The outside run will be 15x16. Is this enough room for the chicken? I hate keeping them penned up but I don't want to lose anymore. We will be doing coated hardware wire all around the sides and top. I read that was the best to use. Hopefully that is true!
