    So, as if I didn't get enough torture building last year's huge run, burying the wire 3 feet deep to keep out varmints and then having to tie it all together....I decided to add on this year. GREAT idea. It must be like child birth... if you remembered the pain, you'd never do it again.

    My arms are scratched and bloody. My fingeres are punctured and ripped apart. My body hurts from pulling it tight and trying to hold it in place while I staple it..... Man! I must be crazy! What is it with these chickens that makes me want to keep doing this???

    We all go through it!! I have found that hog rings used with a hog ringer pliers works well for chicken wire and hardware cloth.
