I went out this morning to start tacking up hardware cloth in the eaves. Not sure what the best way to go about it is. I hate working with hardware cloth. This is what I started doing: Basically shaping the cloth, fitting it in, stapling it down, then I'll use screws and washers to reinforce it. What a pain and I don't like how it looks, though it is a chicken coop so the looks aren't that important. I'm assuming once I actually have it secured with screws and washers it would look better since the ends wouldn't be all sticking out. Is there some easier way I'm missing? I could just do it from the outside and run a length horizontally all along and it would be much quicker and easier, but then the chickens could get into the eaves. Is that something they'll try to do? There are a few exposed nails in the eaves, though we've banged most of them in.
