Building the run tomorrow. Plan on having 2x3 welded wire fencing around the perimeter of the run, with 1 foot of chicken wire buried, and 2 feet of chicken wire up the sides, overtop of the welded wire fencing. There ARE raccoons in the area, so I want to make sure that the run is secure as possible for when I get the ladies. I don't have the money for electric hot wire, so I'm hoping this set up will be secure. I have 2 big dogs who poop in the yard, and I'm not sure if that will deter any midnight marauders, but think the coop will be pretty secure set up this way? I may also line the outside of the coop with cinderblocks - when I can afford to get some. Also, can raccoons open a human sized door? What are my options for securing the door?? Thank you in advance!! This forum is so helpful!!
