    (dont answer that....)

    Im going on Lowes, Home Depot, Tractor Supply's websites looking for hardware cloth, and nothing comes up. Am I calling this the wrong thing? Im trying to get ideas of the price and size of it, and I can't get any hits at all. What am I doing wrong?

    I know tractor supply carries it near me I'm not sure how big a roll they carry. I get mine from a local feed and building supply. You might have to call to see if they carry it.

    They might call it welded wire fencing?

    I bought a roll of 1/2 inch by 4ft x25 ft at the home depot here for $29.98 a week ago. It is called hardware cloth as far as I know.

    On Lowes' website it's under utility fencing. At the store itself they keep it in the garden section. We don't have Tractor Supply around here, so I get my fencing supplies from Lowes. It's a lot cheaper there then at the Farmers Union.

    Well I guess you can call me stupid, because I looked up Lowes under their utility fencing and STILL can't find it. I guess Ill just make some phone calls tomorrow. I hate going into town this time of year, but I might just have to do it. Thanks for all your help.

    y'know; at my Home Depot, they didn't carry it. Had to go to a feed store. They have stuff that's similar, to cover vents and such; but it won't protect your chickens.

    I think it also goes by the name of Rabbit wire...nice thick stuff.
