Hello, I'm just starting to build my coop. The run comes next and i have a few ideas that id like to put here for consideration but i havent narrowed it down too well yet. Im thinking minimulisticly i could wrap chicken wire about 4 ft high for my run with hardware cloth on the lower portion and have part of that flush with the ground with some heavy object holding it down. This is for my run, to reiterate. I wanted to keep the top of the run fence without supports to hopefully deter raccoons from trying and being able to scale the fence. Or if i had a fully supported little fence i was thinking of putting some barbed wire around the top. Would this work well? See, i havent really narrowed it down yet, lol. I was also wondering if, when i let my ladies out around 8 am, could i hold off for another hr before setting down their feed? Will they be okay or could this lead to malnutrition? The same would go around nighttime where i'd pick the food up an hr to an hr/half before nighttime to really deter them? Because the raccoons around here are very lazy it seems and arent very aggressive towards our neighborhood cats so im hoping that they can find enough food outside of the coop before they resort to killing my hens. Believe you me, i am fully considering the safety of my hens and the threat the raccoons pose to them. I am trying to ensure my coop is fort knox and i am trying to let my hens out in the run during the day when the raccoons have hopefully gone off to bed. That is why i asked about the food. This is really just spitballing here specifically about my run ideas so if anyone wants to take a go at it, pls do. If you need more info, ask as well. Thanks so much guys.
