Dog run as movable chicken run? Advice please!
I have an 8'x10' dog run that I was thinking of converting into a chicken run. It's pretty heavy to move by hand, but I can tow it with our ATV (not with chicken's inside of course.) To make the conversion from dog to chicken run, I will line the bottom two feet with hardware cloth and then extend the hardware cloth inwards two feet to discourage digging predators. This will leave a small open rectange area for the girls to forage. If I stake the apron down, should this be adequate predator protection? I'm only getting four chickens and there will be a seperate, predator secure coop attached to the run for nights.
Good idea? Bad Idea? I'm in desperate need of advice here.
