    Here is a short video we did to show how we've gotten great results with using basic chicken wire on our coop. Heavier duty wire would be nice, but its not necessary. We also used some wire on the ground to prevent predators from digging under the run.

    Thank you for taking the time to post your video.
    I, too, lay out chicken wire along the bottom of my pens and the grass grows and nothing digs through.
    Unfortunately, I do have large predators here where I live so I cannot use the chicken wire on the pens themselves.
    Thanx for sharing! [​IMG]
