So.. what is the truth? Lotsa newbies like me get confused... now many of you have had your chicken wire ripped through, and so are proponents of the thinking that it isn't safe enough... others seem to have used it successfully for years.. after my own investigation, I have discoverd that Lowes for instance sells only 1 size/guage (thickness of the wire) and it's 20g. Pretty flimsy, clearly. Then I found this article here: Wire Guages Explained and it turns out, that there ARE some very hefty varieties of chicken wire. The caveat here is that this site is in the UK.. do we have the same choices here in the states? Should we just be shopping around more to find the right one? Seems like 16guage would do the trick... if it'll keep IN birds of prey, and keep rabbits safe, doesn't that seem to be the right mix?
