    Trying to decide what wire to use for the chicken run outside the attached coop. Had intended to used 1 x 1/2 19G but it is quite expensive, has anyone used larger and had predator issues? I'm afraid a coon could reach through 1 x 1, although my hens are secured in the solid coop at night. I don't want to sacrifice security.
