    Where's the best place to buy 1/2" hardware mesh for poultry? I live in central Arkansas, and they seem to only have 10' rolls around here. Hullo?

    My Coop
    I ordered mine from my local feed store. I wanted fifty foot rolls that were four feet wide. They did not carry that size in the store but were happy to order it for me. It only took about a week to arrive and went up fairly easily on the frame we had constructed.

    How's this? I really wanted 5ft cloth/wire so I could lay it down and build a run the width the of coop over it, but 4ft is all I could find. I also have 4ft tall 2x4 coated wire mesh (50ft) I was planning on - I guess that's too large? Local 4-H told me it would be OK for run as long as hens were put inside the coop at night.

  5. Order site to store on http://www.walmart.com , pickup at your local Walmart in a few days or they will ship for free since it's over $50... they have a few other 3rd party vendors on the Walmart site that will ship as well...

    My 3x50 foot rolls cost $59. How does that compare to what y'all paid? I'd kinda like to know for future reference.
