Some people (I have not tried this) use large washers with screws to help keep the hardware cloth stable.Alright, thanks. I'll need to secure the cloth on the outside of the coop then. I can't maneuver anything around the beams.
I used screws and washers with the cloth. I'd rather have it as secure as possible before they're in the coop than to learn the hard way. I can see if something happened while freeranging but not for something to get into the coop.
