We are in the process of building our first chicken coop. I am debating if I should put wire mesh under the coop and run to keep predators out? My neighbors are on their third flock due to wildlife around us. The chickens will not be able to free range all day every day due to the hawks in the area. If I put the mesh under the run, they will not be able to dig. I have read about putting outside the coop as a barrier so the predator can't dig close the the run. Thoughts?
