    I used a heavy duty hardware cloth that I bought at Southern States (our local cooperative here) and have added a house that they can go into and get on top of so they can rest their feet.

    Hope that helps! [​IMG]

    We have hard wire on the bottom, doubled. Then in the center I made an elevated area for nesting. They have a ramp to get up to it.
    Of course they are actually living in my wood pile. Whenever I get a posse together we will get them put up and a lock put on so little fingers won't be opening their cage again!

    I have always used ½x1 and all wire ( no wood frame ) hung the cages with clothes line wire from rafters of a shed or shelter .
    If you use wood in building the cage keep all of it out of the inside of the pen ,, they will eat it.
