I'm looking to fix up my coops so they are less muddy and more secure. I'm just wondering if anyone has any suggestions or sources for cheap 1/4" hardware cloth and gravel. The best deals I've found on hardware cloth have still been $100 for a 100' roll. That wouldn't be too bad, but considering the sizes of my coops, I'd really like 500+ feet of it, more would be better, and of course I can't afford that on my shoestring budget. I got a quote on gravel from a nearby landscaping place, and even getting the cheapest gravel they offer it would still come out to around $350. (I'm hoping for around 10 cubic meters or so.) Thinking of looking into crusher dust, but I've been so busy I haven't called around for quotes yet. Hoping that will be cheaper, but I guess I'll find out. Just wondering if there's any cheaper way to get what I'm looking for. Maybe this thread will help others looking for the same things, too! If I'm out of luck and that's as cheap as it's going to get, I'll just have to buy these things at the high prices... Eventually, anyway.
