:Hi! I am converting a 10 x 10 x 6 feet tall outdoor dog kennel into our chicken pen. The coop will sit inside the kennel yard. It has 4 chainlink panels that are assembled together. I keep reading about using hardware cloth or chicken wire to wire underneath runs/pens. But I can't seem to find more specific instructions. I originally assumed that I would be wiring the entire bottom, so it would have a chicken wire floor on top of dirt. But I've read that the chickens can injure their beaks and aren't as happy as it's harder to scratch and dig for bugs, etc. It sounds like many of you start the wire 2 feet up from the ground and wrap it round some way to thwart digging predators, I just don't quite understand how this is done so that it does not cover the entire run/pen floor. All of your suggestions are mightily appreciated before I go out in to that killer heat and misquitoes to do the wrapping. Chicken love to all!
