Predators, like foxes and raccoons tend to dig right at the spot
where the coop meets the ground. You can lay galvanized wire mesh
on the ground, along the sides of the coop to keep them out.
However, in our own experience, even though we don't use this method on our farm, no predator has been able to get into any of our
many chicken coops - not even a snake. We do have lots of wild critters though, and we recently lost several prized hens when we forgot to close one of the coops for the night.
Most digging predators cannot dig enough in one night
to get under the coop. Just put coops on level ground, and keep an eye out for developing holes. Move the coop if you see a hole beside it.
If you live in fox, or marten country (fast diggers) then you should use precautions like the wire mesh idea, above.
