    If its at all possible I would put some hardware cloth over the chicken wire; a possum or a coon can bite right through chicken wire like a hot knife through butter. You will also need to bury some wire around the bottom to keep predators from digging under. You can just nail some chicken wire like a skirt to the bottom frame on the outside then bury it with a few inches of dirt. So if a dog or a coon tries to dig into the coop they will run into the wire and not be able to get in.


    Is there going to be a place for the chickens to get in out of the rain?

    Is the other person providing a cover for part of it for shade and shelter from the weather?

    Nice and spacious for some hens; they'll enjoy the space. And the run is tall enough for a person to walk upright. [​IMG]
