We are in a bind with our chicken coop- the hardware cloth is twice as expensive and we will need 6 rolls of it at $47 a roll.. The chicken wire would be $47 total. I know everything says no chicken wire, but are there certain areas of the coop that we could use chicken wire? Like the bottom, vents, etc? Our budget on the coop is running out and he says no to the hardware cloth.. But everyone on here says no to chicken wire. Also, we have a dog that oils keep away most predators, were sure. Bt I don't want to lose my girls Has anyone used chicken wire successfully?
