Well, I have pulled out the miter saw that I have never actually used and built a tiny run for my baby chicks to enjoy during the hot days. It's a little cockamamie, but hey, I'm proud of my very first efforts to build anything! It even has a hinged door on top! There is no skirting, but I only plan on using this during the day when I'm home and just moving it around the yard close to my house. Later I'll attach it to the bigger run (not built yet) and reinforce. Here's the question: I just used a heavy duty stapler/staples to attach the 1/2" hardware cloth. Is that enough? They seem to pull out pretty easily. Will I need something stronger when I build the real thing? What might I use? Thanks!
