    Hi

    What's the thinking about harware cloth for the floor of a goose house.

    I have a 4x8 foot floor with "joists" every 16" and I would rather put hardware cloth down than what i have now -- plywood, for cleanliness and disease resistance.

    is hardware cloth ok?

    Toulouse, Africans, Chinese.

    Thank you!

    How many geese?

    I have lino over plywood with wood shavings on top. I use the deep litter method and haven't had to clean out the coop since August. I do have good ventilation...

    I think it would be hard on their feet
    and would sag under their weight.
