Hi everyone! I am a proud new owner of some chicks! So excited to begin this process. We are currently building the coop and run, have the framing and part of the coop completed. I had a question on predator proofing the run floor. The hens will be in the coop with closed door at night, and let out in the daytime. Do I need to bury hardware cloth in the run to keep out predators? We have a border of cement blocks that will stop dogs/coyote etc. But I wasn't sure about rats? I have not noticed any in the area, just mice. It would be kind of hard to do at this stage since we have the framing and digging out 18" would surely sift everything. We are planning on keeping food and water out in the run, so not sure what it would attract. Has this been a problem for anyone? Thank you!
