    Ok. You have a fair sized run. Some people completely enclose their run and have wire either dug down so far in the ground...or they have a skirt of wire so predators can't dig in. I'm not certain what your setup involves... but it's hard to guess what would be more expensive.

    I see you've started a thread on electric wire...the people there are more experienced with electric wire for poultry...and can give you better suggestions. :clap

    My run part is actually about 500 square feet, my coop is 6' by 8'. My run consists of 4.5 foot tall fence (chicken wire, that is all I have available to me, unfortunately), double layered, with 1'' chicken wire 1' tall at the bottom (to act as a chick barrier.) with an 8-10'' apron staked down... I always stake it down until the grass has grown over it acting as a natural stake.
