    I use the 1x2 wielded which I can never find at a fair price if at all.

    i pay $120 for the 5ft x100ft roll. Plan get it on sale for $100. The 4ft x 100ft is $60 on sale. 3 ft is useless to me.

    That roll runs 200$ or so but for the quality you can't beat it. Unless you are lucky enough to have a local wielded steel wire producer.

    thats too much. I guess it's cause the smaller 1x2 openings that makes it so expensive. Can't even find that around here.

    Too big for me, I believe in cya and I have lost good cocks to wire facing with young stags with no true intent as yet, but can goat the cock into banging himself up bad. The smaller wire seems to let them know they can't get to the other bird. If I do this barn build for my Colorado farm i may convert as there will be no way for the young stags to interact.

    4mo is dangerous with the lines I breed so if I slip it's a problem. To be honest, fully feathered they can not be confined or they go at each other. I keep 2x2x2 cells for young trouble makers.

    I got a few 2 month old penny hatch and whitehackles that are starting to get a bit rowdy. I may throw my mel sims black in with em to settle em down.
