    Any decent hardware store or lumberyard or Home Depot type store will have it (anyhow I've never lived anywhere they don't), as well as more-rural or less-tiny feed stores and farm stores.

    It just may not be CALLED hardware cloth. If you ask for hardware cloth and they say "huh?" try again asking for "half-inch galvanized wire mesh" (or quarter-inch if you want, but usually half-inch is better). It will be with the garden fencing and snowfence and chainlink materials usually.

    GOod luck, have fun,

    Pat

    I bought mine at Home Depot. It was a lot cheaper than what they were charging at the feed store.

    HomeDepot and Lowes both have 1/2" hardware cloth.

    Lowes also has 1" fencing and 1"x1/2" welded wire fencing. Made from heavier gauge wire.
    If I were to start over again I would use those. Not that the chickens care.
