Folks, we've set up a dog run with using two panels on the bottom and elevating the whole structure. We are using this to house the chicks the first 2 months that we have them ( arriving Sept 1). They are supposed to be 2 months old when they come to us. My question after reading everything I can get my 'hands' on - I'd like to use 1/2" vinyl coated wire to keep them from falling thru but I don't know if it's sufficient for the babies. We are constructing a 'star building as their hutch eventually adding the run as a flight cage. Can I get some input, please?
