We are new to having chickens and are finishing up our coop/run. I'm trying to figure it the best way to secure the run. Some people say bury wire 1-2' and others use an apron of wire around the outside. People don't do both do they? I'm leaning toward adding an apron of hardware cloth on top of the grass and finding a way to anchor it until the grass grows through and helps hold it in place. Is that good or should I try to bury it instead? We definitely have fox because I've seen them during the day after they cut hay next door. We also have raccoons. I don't think dogs or bear should be a big issue. I have some areas where the run was built level on unlevel ground. Adding an apron and then back filling the gaps (on top of the hardware cloth) with dirt would work, yes? It would only be a few inches underground, but I could come out 1-2 feet around the run. Here is the back side (run is L shaped and wraps around the front). It's obviously not done in this picture, but it's too dark to go take another right now!
