Ya'll thanks so much! Please call me Kelly, Bird/Wire is much too Formal. I am quite pleased with my oops paint scheme. That paint is mega-bargain Kelly-Moore 4$ a gallon special! It honestly has taken so much longer and more work than planned...not to mention $$$....Cowboy you should hear what my DH says about the cost of our eggs...all the while he is also the one who insisted on doing this "right" and making it look "nice" .... I'm gonna go check out crimping pliers, that sounds like just the ticket. We used 3 kinds of wire, and I think that the clips you are talking about ought to work? The bottom of the coop in all hardware cloth and we used welded wire and 1" chicken wire on top of that so we are joining hardware cloth to welded wire and chicken wire, will that still work?I have overlap, and I have some additional wood planned to go on those seams, mostly to keep kids from getting cut on wire...paint them blue? or dark? About superglue....MY BIL is a Doc and he said to me recently in a discussion about something else that the tape (steri strips)is better for small cuts, the glue will work better for something that ought to have a stitch and use both if you needed 2 or 3 stitches....IMHO I'd rather use precut strips of tape rather than try to hold/superglue a chicken and not get any feathers in the process...but I generally glue myself anytime I have ever tried to use superglue.......and I think the cheap stuff is chemically the same as the medical grade only medical grade has sterile packaging? I think he told me he might have used regular superglue on himself and animals a few times...I bet you could use it as long as you were careful about contamination.
