    I would bend the wire to the outside. The reason is to keep things from digging in not so much need to keep chickens from digging out. I would go at least 12 inches myself. STRONG panels from the look of them. Good choice. It looks like a very strong construction. I like it.

    Must show pics of chicken coop and of course the little fuzzies when they get there. [​IMG]
