Hi, We are in the process of building a coop to house ~ 48 hens. A little too ambitious for first timers, I fear. The coop building is going well....though we are nearing our funds limit. Next we are putting in the runs: 1) 16' X 40' covered for unsupervised , 2) 28' X 40' uncovered for while we are around, 3) 16 ' X 40' for our 10 turkeys. Last night we trenched the full perimeter 2' deep to bury hardware cloth. We plan on putting 48" around the perimeter half buried...leaving 2' above ground. The top walls will be 14G 2X4 welded wire 6' tall. The total height of the walls will be 8'. The covering of the 1st run will be X-Treme deer barrier (8' X 100' rolls) supported with 2X4 rafters. Well, this is enough for now...more to come! Hey, question for you. Anyone know the best place (least expensive) to purchase 1/2" hardware cloth 48" wide. We are going to need ~ 175' of it. Also, if you have any suggestions prior to putting the runs in...please shout out. Cost savings tips are always welcomed Oh, and how do I add pictures?
