It seems I need help with every little thing I do when it comes to this chicken coop! Now I am working on attaching the hardware cloth to the chain link panels I am using for a run. I have to wait until next spring to put up a permanent run, so for now, a chain link kennel is all I have. I'd like it to be safer, so I got some 1/2 inch hardware cloth. I read up and did many searches and I really don't find step by step instructions... but from what I did read, I got the J clips and the little tool to squeeze them on. I can attach the hardware cloth by it's top strand of wire, but I can't get the clips in around the cloth wire and kennel wire anywhere in the middle. It just doesn't fit though as easily as I'd hoped because of the chain link angles of the links do not line up nicely with the H cloth. So before I waste any more J clips, I thought I'd better ask! Is there a trick to this? Do I need wider openings in my hardware cloth? Help! edited to fix my title typo!
