Thanks for tuning in! I am planing on building a 30'x40' run and was originally going to do the lower half in 1/2 inch hardware cloth and the upper part in 2"x4" galvanized welded wire fence, with a total height of 7' (tall enough for my 6' husband to work comfortably in the run) and 1' buried as a skirt around the run for digging predators (we have LOTS of predators). We're still thinking about what to do for the top of the run for red tailed hawk/coopers hawk/barred owl/great horned owl protection. Anyhow, I found the hardware cloth on-line for a really good price. It is the SAME price as the galvanized welded wire, so I am wondering if I should just do the entire run in hardware cloth or still do half and half? Does it matter? What other materials/wires do people use?? I'd love to hear everyone's opinions. Even finding good prices this is an expensive endeavor! LOL I want to get it right. Thanks everyone!
