So this is the chicken run I'm currently building. It's 25'X50' for now and will expand later this summer over to the other side of the garage out in the open where the permanent coop will go. I've buried the posts in 2.5' of concrete and anchored them well with support braces so they really don't move, little to no play in them. I've stretched the 14gauge welded wire (2"x4") and stapled it to the support boards and posts. I've also ran 24" of chicken wire along the bottom. As you can see from the pictures I'm burying anywhere from 6" to 18" of wire in hopes that it will keep things from trying to dig in. The 2" mesh netting for the top just came today so it will be going up this weekend. It's been a bit cold still to move the chicks out to their temporary coop, they are just now 5.5 weeks old. My question is should I still safeguard and run some electric netting along the base? I don't want to go through all this expense to just have something get in and kill all the chickens.
