Metal runs are secure which is good, they can’t be chewed out of. However not sure what you’re planning for the roof of the run but don’t make it metal, you’d be better off with a wooden or mesh roof. Wooden roofs are much better for temperature control, it will be cooler under one than under a metal roof which will get very hot underneath. Either that or a very secure mesh roof (strong enough to withstand cats, foxes etc jumping on top).

I’m not sure about wood chips. I’ve seen people use them, but I’d be concerned about the type of wood if Flo was inclined to chew them. If you did get bark chips, you’d want to make sure they were a natural colour, not dyed.
