    OK, I purchased 1/2" hardware cloth--thinking it was made to build a Fort Knox.. But is seems like very thin wire.. I think it's 20 gauge wire.. I'll have to go look at it again... SO---Will this keep those pest out of my coop or do I need to put chainlink fence on top of the hardware cloth to make sure nothing can get in????
