Am wanting to put ( bury )wire around the bottom of our coop. Because, from past experience, we have had critters living under our back deck off the house, after we built it and under the tool shed we made years ago... I read alot of post on here warning that chicken wire will keep chickens in, but will NOT keep predators out...So my question is : Can I trust standard chicken wire to keep burrowing animals out from under our coop? It is about 7-8 inches off the ground, as our coop is built on skids. I dont think the chickens would even be able to slip underneath that space...but I still dont want to find a family of possoums or Heaven Forbid!! another coon or fox!!!!! living under the coop. So hardware cloth? Chicken wire? , or what about cedar fence boards? There is just enough room for fence boards if I use stakes to secure them? Or should I just bury wire in case something digs under?? Just wondered what the best plan is? BTW Our run is fenced in hog wire , cattle panels, and that other 1x1 inch wire Thanks !
