I just built a new 4'w x 8'l x 7't coop. It is surrounded by a 7.5' x 13' chainlink dog kennel. I have cut chicken wire buried approx 6 - 8" under the kennel with the pointy ends pointed upwards and about 1 ft of chicken wire wired to the bottom of the kennel. I also have chicken wire over the top of the kennel wired to the fence and stapled to the plywood roof and tarps on top of that (I haven't had a chance to install the plastic roofing & it's going to rain this week). My chickens live about 10 minutes away from us, so the chicken door is left open so that they can wander outside in their kennel during the day. The chickens reside on horse property which is protected by several dogs (raised with chickens) and barn cats. Is this safe enough? All suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
