I have read different opinions for keeping chickens safe from preditors. What method is best for a chainlink dog kennel? I was told that the traditional chicken wire preditors such as weasels can get through. I live in VA and have weasels, raccoons, oppossums, groundhogs etc. My plan was chicken wire on top, covered with a tarp or wood and inside wood for protection from the elements. Plus I can hang their nesting areas.
