    I've read a lot of posts but am asking about your experiences with using hardware cloth only as the bottom of the fencing around a run.

    Has anyone had a predator (hawks, coons, and possums here) climb up fencing and get through chicken wire?

    Will they climb to the top and get through chicken wire or netting?

    Will they access a roof of an attached building to come down into the run?

    What has been a successful for you to deter hawks from free ranging chickens in your yard or pasture?

    I only have three pullets and cannot afford to feed the wildlife!

    Thanks in advance for sharing!
