We are sourcing materials for the new coop ( WHOOP WHOOP!) and in searching hardware cloth I am coming up on some variations.



19 ga. or 23ga?


I'm assuming I want 1/2 inch


Any particular brand preferred for ease of working with?


TIA!

Hi,
!9 gauge will be stronger than 23.
I got 50 ft x 4 feet 1/2" off e bay for less than 60 bucks. I thought it was a good deal. Free shipping too.
Good luck Fred

1/2 inch hardware cloth will almost always be 19 gauge. 1/4 inch cloth will be 23 gauge. I don' t know if there's even any choice, but I suppose there is. Anyway, ebay is a great place to buy hardware cloth. Good price and excellent size selections. Although I have heard of somewhat better price by ordering from a hardware store.
