I don't have chickens right now,but I want to get some soon so I am designing my coop. My question is, would two layers of chicken wire work as well as one layer of hardware cloth? Also, I'm just checking this to make sure: burying wire means making a floor out of it then covering it with dirt, right? Because for a long time I assumed it meant digging a hole a few feet deep and putting the wire vertical in it. Last week, though, I thought I had a great idea, then realized that was probably what everyone meant all along.
