So today I start renovating the coop. I got an inexpensive small 4x8 A Frame deal on craigslist. Love it for it's smallness, we have a tiny backyard. The idea was to move it around every few days and let them muck up the yard under it. Problems: A raccoon got in. That's the big one, It doesn't have a bottom and to be moveable it didn't have anything going under the ground, so it got dug in. Lost a bird. There is no door. To get let them out you just sorta lift the lighter end and they run out. To get them back in, however... well you sorta guide them over then lift, then one goes in, then you get another and encourge her in while the first one runs back out... repeat. There is a door to get the eggs, but not down in the run area. So today I am all ready. I got my hardware cloth, got my u shaped nails (fencing staples I think?) Got hinges and a board that is the perfect size for a door. Went ahead and got some boards to sure up the sides, there were a few cracks. I'm picking a spot, digging a trench, burrying the hardware cloth and putting the door on. One question: Do I attach the coop to the hardware cloth? I mean I don't just make a hardware cloth ring and set the coop on, I can use those u nails to actually attach the coop to the cloth right?
