I was wondering if someone could tell me if the hardware cloth below is good enough for building a coop. I recently moved my flock from a fairly predator safe area to one that is not so friendly. I know to bury about a foot of it underground to discourage anything. Is the 1/2 inch small enough to keep weasels and minks out? And is the 19 gauge strong enough?
