    Building our run and shopped around. Here is the best deal I've found.

    4' high x 100' long 1/2 x 1/2 welded galvanized hardware cloth (19 gauge): $157

    It's on Amazon and True Value Hardware store online, but shipping is about $50.

    INSTEAD, call your local True Value hardware store and ask for part # 693876. They should price match the online price (retail is $179). Probably take 1-3 days for it to arrive at the store and you go pick it up.

    You pay tax, which is far less than shipping, and support your local business.

    Hope this helps!

    Darn it...I just bought two rolls of galvanized 1/2" x 1/2" x 3' tall x 50' long for $42.99 each at Big R (and that was the cheapest I could find in town). Wish I had known this first...I could have saved a bit.

    You can also check your local co-op or feed store. We just bought a roll 4' x 100' and it was only $103 (that was including tax)

    Quote:Yeah, I WISH we had something like that here in Western PA. A couple 'coop's nearer to Pittsburgh, but only in name. They're mostly just a trendy name to sell overpriced 'organic' food to yuppies [​IMG]

    PS- There's a thinner gauge that's cheaper, but I didn't want to go smaller than 19 gauge. What gauge did you get?
