I have 5 or 6' chain link fence, can I use that for a run or will it not be predator proof? Since its not very tall I won't be able to cover the run if I use it since hubby and I will have to stoop down to get in there. Do you have to cover the run? If its not covered the chickens will need to have their wings clipped wont they? I really like the coop and run idea from frontporchindiana, there are pics of it in the large coop design section. Its red and has storage in the front and 2 fenced in areas, one for garden and one for chickens to be alternated every year. i thought that was an excellent idea. I just wondered if to save money I could use chain link instead.
