    Any way, Mine don't have wire on the bottom, just dug the sides about a foot and 1/2, haven't had any intruders.

    Quote:We will be using hardware cloth for all of the wire on our coop and run, including the run floor. We want to be able to leave them out during the day (when we are at work) and don't want to come home to a disaster. Our concern would be snakes and all kinds of FL critters getting under buried wire. So, we will make a wire frame for the floor and then fill it with free mulch from the city mulch bins.
