For lack of better words I have an old dog run that I am trying to convert to a coop / run for my 8 week old Bantam chickens. The fencing for the run is a metal fence (Cattle fence maybe?) that criss cross eachther to form 2" x 4" squares. I picked up 3' tall hardware cloth roll to circle the run at ground level so that the raccoons cannot get in. My question is will the 3' high be enough that I can use the cattle fencing the rest of the way or will I need to cover everything with hardware cloth? (if the cattle fence isn't sufficeint at that level would chicken wire work over top of the cattle fence since it's a little cheaper? Thanks! This site is very helpful for a newbie like me.
