    Hey guys I have this old treehouse i will be turning into a chicken coop.... there will be a very large pen...around 200 feet perimeter.. do I need to put a covering over top? if so what should i use? it is in the woods so im worried bird netting would be ripped from a fallen limb or something... Any other tips?

    Looks good but as old as I am, I would be afraid to climb on it on a snowy or ice day unless you put in stairs.

    Anything is doable and eight foot fence is good and you might want to double on the aviary netting because I know it would be expensive to put up wire tops. It all depends on the size of run you will create.
