Hi all, We are finally just about done with our 10x16" coop... except for the predator proofing. We live on 5 fully fenced acres, and the main predators I'm concerned about are racoons, possums, and, well, I don't want my border collies getting in. I initially planned to dig a trench all the way around and bury a foot of hardware cloth... and it's dawning on me that with our sandy soils, that might not be enough. So then I thought I'd just dig around the inside, but either way, I'm stirring up the soil, which makes it easier to dig through. I am planning to use a dirt floor - we basically convered what was 4 posts and a roof into a 3 walled coop and I'd prefer to keep the dirt floor. Anyway, I wonder if a better option wouldn't be to lay half-inch hardware cloth in the floor, fastened into the walls. It would sink into the dirt eventually and be topped with a lot of pine shavings. Thoughts? Thanks!
