Looking for heavy gauge hardware cloth

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

All I seem to find is the crappy stuff.  Is there a good place online to order the heavy duty gauge?

What do you mean by 'heavy gauge'?

 

1/2" HC is what most people use, standard wire size is 19ga, which should be plenty of installed correctly.

16ga 1/2"  is available, but harder to find and costlier. 

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."
