    Ok, we had a mink attack and it looks like it CHEWED thru the wire to get in. 2x3" wire. What is strong wire that I could put as my run wire? Any help appreciated! Pics, types, names! Thank you!

    I hope you can see it behind the nest boxes in this picture

    I would go even smaller than the 1" with .5" x .5" galv hardware cloth/wire.
