Okay so we're hopefully building a new coop and run soon, which the chickens desperately need, just need the money, and right now I want to build a 4x8 coop and put it about 2 feet off the ground then have an 8x50 or so foot run attached (maybe closer to 52-54 or up to 60). But my mom doesn't think 4x8 is big enough and though my dad previously thought it was too big, we're now considering either making it more a shed style and/or bigger, closer to 8x8 or 8x12, or just buying a shed kit or an installed shed. My dad likes the plastic ones and they are fairly cheap but I'm not sure. My mom doesn't even want us building one. She thinks we won't have time and it just won't turn out well/that my dad would mess it up and thinks we should just buy a shed. I think it would be a fun project and we cant find ways to make it cheaper. ANYHOW. Even if we made it cheaply, I still doubt we could build an equivalent size one for the same price as a plastic shed. I worry about ventilation or germs on the plastic though.
But anyhow, I haven't told them yet but I have been doing my own research on hardware cloth and so far I think these are the best prices I have found. I have also recently heard of looking on my pet chicken which is interesting because I didn't even know MPC had hardware cloth! So will look there. And lookat hardware stores and ensure it's not cheaper there.
Anyhow, I've found these and am thinking of getting the second one but that'll add up
I wanna get 3 of them. Surely theres gotta be a better price?https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B000OWDKQK/ref=aw_wl_ov_dp_1_2?colid=2PTMX313RM103&coliid=IDG06OBFMZI0Shttps://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B000XFY40O/ref=aw_wl_ov_dp_1_3?colid=2PTMX313RM103&coliid=I2I6JO5XUS420Z&vs=1https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B001QINT6M/ref=aw_wl_ov_dp_1_4?colid=2PTMX313RM103&coliid=I27ZDWKXRUVYYT&vs=1
