So I've got the whole top of my coop covered in hardware cloth, with a roof over it. Roof's hinged, and goes up and down depending on the weather to help ventilate more, or keep heat in more, or whatever needs to happen on a given day. The hardware cloth is all one piece, and the edges are sandwiched between 2" x 4"s (having been poultry-stapled down first) so I'm not worried about anything getting in just by virtue of weight, but... Dad says the coons will just rip apart the hardware cloth. Having seen the ripped trap picture, I suspect it's POSSIBLE, but unlikely, and that something that determined would have found a way in anything short of chickens dunked in cement and left to harden (and doing that, of course, would present its own problems). So has anyone had coons rip hardware cloth apart? And how many of you have had evidence of attempts but not success?
