Would like to use it as a grow-out area for "look but don't touch" chicks later this year. Covering it is my main concern. Is there a way to bolt a 2x4 to the top of the chain link to attach hardware cloth or is wiring it down good enough? Then I'm thinking screw another 2x4 to the back of the existing coop to attach the other side of a hardware cloth cover. I know I need more hardware cloth up higher--I already aproned and buried the first piece. Pavers can come out once that area is secure. Need to figure out an access door on the end too. Saw a fox trotting through in daylight not thirty feet from there a few days ago. If anyone has pictures or what they've done in a small narrow area, please share! I was going to then hang a pulley door to allow newbies access into the area under the elevated coop, which will be blocked off temporarily (and eventually the coop too when everyone gets along)--thanks Ridgerunner for that suggestion. Was thinking I could also have it as an area to separate a chicken or chickens in the future if I needed to. Anything else you'd do to make more secure? It's about 3x14. Thanks for suggestions!
