My husband thinks chicken wire is enough so I've decided to predator-proof the run myself. We have a fairly large run that has chicken wire (not the kind y'all will recommend!) all around it and some kind of plastic netting on the roof. After a lot of research, I realize I need to put hardware cloth at the bottom 2-3 ft. My question is do I need to bury it as most of you do or could I attach it and bring it out and put something on it to hold in place? I already did one side. Put the hardware cloth on, folded it out at the bottom and then put in a raised bed on top of it, two pavers tall. I'm not sure if that is good enough or not. They would have to go in the raised bed, dig down through the dirt, but then they would hit the hardware cloth. The rest of the run is just chicken wire. We have clay and digging is not easy. Thanks! I have a lot of Silkies and they don't always run when they need to!
