So I'm in the blueprint stage of my next coop/run and it's going to be considerably larger than my current setup. The coop is going to be about 8x12 and I was going to attach a run that's 12x25 or so. I aim to add more chickens until my flock is about 30. We have some serious raccoon problems here, I shot a couple some weeks back and haven't had any problems with them but a family of three has moved in it seems. My main issue is the cover on my run, I thought of using poultry netting but it seems a raccoon could just shred through it with no problems. I plan on using 6 foot chain link fence around the run. My only idea as of right now is to just run more chain link over the top rested on 2x4's or 2x6's. It's around 90 dollars a roll for 6x50 fence and it would sure add up quick, but as of right now it's all I can think of. The coop is going to be a couple hundred feet from my house so I don't think I'll be having any electricity to the coop. Have any of you tried putting barbed wire around the top? It seems to me a raccoon would go right over that but who knows. Any suggestions would be appreciated, thanks.
