    Of course you KNOW there is not a single answer for your hardware cloth question.
    Price depends upon how wide you need it to be, how long of a roll you want, how big of squares you will tolerate and the guage of wire you want. We wanted 4' wide, 1/2" squares, and no smaller than 20 gauge. I found Menard's to have the cheapest price--BUT, I printed off the screen shot of their price and Home Depot matched it. Home Depot was closer to us, so it worked out great.

    I have 8 Indian Runner ducks, 3 Guineas, and about 30 chickens that all occupy the same run, coop, roost. There is the occasional squabble, but for the most part, they all get along.

    The Guineas hang with the ducks because they were the same age and I put them together in the same brooder.

    Use a couple of brooms. It gives you a 10 foot arm span. Invaluable for herding animals.

    Thanks to everyone who gave me ideas on meds for my chickens. I am hoping the rain clears up (just a little, please [​IMG]) so I can go out and spend some time really checking each one and making sure I have all the sickies quarantined.

    Was it the new bird I brought in or the turkeys passing something along (because they're hacking a lot ((I think they just forget to take a drink once in awhile, but still concerns me)) I will probably never know. I do know that I will probably not get anymore birds from someone at a trade outside TSC or the like again. I should have looked those chickens over a little bit better before I bought them. I was just too excited to find some Marans!!

    I'll keep ya'll posted as to how they're doing.
