I went to the feed store today, to purchase a roll of hardware cloth. We're actually starting on our coop and I wanted to get some to put an apron under the shed near where we're building the coop. I had bought a 10' roll of 36" a week or so ago (for $14.99), but decided to save that towards the run and buy some that wasn't quite so wide for the apron. Well, the feed store closest to the house only had 36", so I decided to try the feed store up the road. Bad news is, it's a great feed store that is going out of business. Good news is that they were having a going out of business sale! I'm wandering around, when I look over in a dark corner and see a large roll of hardware cloth. It is a roll of galvanized, 1/2 ", 19 gauge, 36" tall, which is 97' long (it was a 100 ft originally, but had they sold 3 feet of it previously). It originally sold for $2.79 a foot. I got the whole roll for $65! I think I feel giddy.
