Our coop is going to have hardware cloth on the windows, doors, etc. The door will be closed every night. For the run, I am not clear if I should be using chicken wire or hardware cloth or combo or something else. Is hardware cloth too much considering they will be in the coop every night? I was planning on enclosing the entire run but not sure what material to use. Also what should be the opening size. It seems that the hardware cloth comes in 1/4" and I want to be able to see the chickens! Thoughts? TIA!
