So, I bought my coop before find BYC and realize I should have built a coop. I have read many posts about the hazards of these pre-made coops and now I am scared for my chickens. How can I predator proof it. I am putting new latches on for sure. Should I put hardware cloth on the bottom so nothing can get underneath? I was using forest floor and pine shavings for the floor and still want to do that but scared of something digging from underneath. I am going to plan on building a coop but this will have to do for a little while. I have 6 chicks right now not sure how many are hens so I don't know how many we will be keeping. I am really scared though. I love my chickens. ...... please help.
