    I am planning to use 2 x 4 welded wire on the upper part and roof of my run, and 1/2 inch hardware cloth on the lower 3 feet and apron. Someone mentioned that it wouldn't keep squirrels out. Are squirrels a predator?

    No, squirrels are no danger to chickens, but they could get into things and steal food... [​IMG]

    Are there any predators I need to worry about, using the 2 x 4 welded wire roof?

    My squirrles have chewed a hole in the roof and come in an get the eggs, and help themselves to the grains. No other problems.
