I see so many people against chicken wire. Hardware mesh for the win, I guess. I buy 1" galvanized chicken wire from my local farm store. It's STRONG! If everybody talking about how bad chicken wire is means the 2" stuff, you are absolutely correct! That stuff is crazy weak. It feels like it was made from that wire people use for crafts. I just can't imagine a predator ripping through the chicken wire I have. My cow has access to the inside door of my coop, which is chicken wire. She used it as a scratching wall. It ripped the staples out, but the chicken wire didn't come untwisted or anything. I use it whenever I make doors for my coops, brooder covers, and windows. Yeah, it stretches, but I have never seen a hole ripped in the wire, nor have I been able to on the scraps I experiment on. What are your thoughts? Am I underestimating the strength of a hungry animal, or do most people only have access to 2" chicken wire?
