    Okay around our coop we continued down with the wire and buried it but what do you guys to under the door. It is framed with wood. Should I just bury wire under the soil outward?

    A lot of people do that. 12 - 18", I think. You should be fine :)

    You can simply lay the wire on the ground from the underside of the door outward. Pin it down or bury it somewhat. I will do the job.
