So! The chicks have moved to the coop and it's pretty much all set in there, with the exception of nest boxes which I'm not going to worry about for a while. My attention now has turned to the run. I have 50 linear feet of 6' tall chain link dog panels attached to a side of my coop, so my run is roughly 10' x 20'. I bought 100 ft. of 1" x 2" welded wire fencing that is 3' tall to make the lower portion of the chain link more secure. Here is my main question: Can I bend the wire fencing and put 2' of it on the run and a 1' skirt? For now I just want the run to be dog-proof during the day, the birds will be locked in the coop at night which is predator-proofed with 1/2" HW cloth. Eventually my goal will be for the run to be predator-proof as well so I can leave the pop door open, but that's a ways off. I am planning to cover the run as well, but still working out details on how/what to cover it with.
