Just letting everyone know that when you're planning your coop and layout of the run, do not settle for quick and cheap. We went to Church Sunday after noon. We put the girls up while we were gone as we as we always do when we leave, and when we came back home there was a pack of four dogs trying to get into the pen. They were not successful. I'm glad that I took the time to use hard ware cloth and bury some around the edges. They tried to dig under and go through but never made it in. I do have some electric fenceing around the pen but it wasn't on. It is automatic and comes on at dusk. You never know when something will show up and try to kill your birds. I'm sure they'll be back but I feel they will fail again. Think of doing all you can to protect the investment you have put in.
