    Glad to hear you arrived all in one piece!

    If the lock on that hutch is strong then I don't think that a boxer could possibly get into it. Hardware cloth is pretty much predator proof. The only way that your dog might be able to get into trouble is if she is able to actually tip the hutch over forcing the door to open or break apart. (I've seen this happen.) So, make sure she can't behind it or in someway push it over.

    Good luck. Aren't chickens fun??[​IMG]
