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!
