Is 12 gauge wire overkill for a chicken yard? I am content with 14 gauge to save $$ but my husband thinks everything needs to be industrial grade. 12 gauge will hold in horses. These are only chickens. We live where predators are minimum, occasionally a stray dog, but that's it. No racoons, bears, hawks, etc. Nothing of the sort here in the islands. Please help.
