    I saw on here awhile back someone posted pics of the BEAUTIFUL job they did using screws and washers to fasten hardware cloth. I went to buy the washers, and DH found these fantastic screws called wafer head screws instead...basically like a screw with a washer attached already, so a little less work. They are about $5.00 for a box of 200 1/2 inch screws, and they work fantastic! Very easy, quick, they look nice, and no more fighting with those blasted poultry staples! Maybe you all have used these before, but I had never seent hem before and so I thought I might save someone else a little headache and time!

    That sounds a lot easier than using separate washers. Thanks for posting that!

    Were you able to find them at somewhere like Home Depot or Lowes?

    Thanks!

    I got them at Menards...which is like a Home Depot type of place, so I imagine they or Lowes would also carry them.
