    Hello all, I'm new to Chickens and the PNW. I'll be building a coop soon and wondered if there was a preferred material for the "skin" of the coop up here... should i use regular chicken wire? something tougher? Any advice is appreciated.

    Depends on what you have for predators. Dogs can easily get through chicken wire, as can a raccoon. Usually hardware cloth is the smarter way to go.
