    So, it's that time of year again. Just like any chicken lover I am getting chicks next week. I am currently remodeling my chick coop and I have a situation. The wire I am using to keep my chicks in the coop has some sharp edges. I want to know if I can use duct tape to cover up these edges and keep them safe. Thank you for your responses!!

    I will be getting new chicks later in the Summer. This sounds like a good idea I will be borrowing from you.

    It will deteriorate eventually and turn into powder and fiber strings eventually depending on exposure to elements such as sun/rain/heat.
