    Cheap usually equals a run that predators will be happy to breech and take your birds. 1/2" hardware cloth is the gold standard of fencing material. Costs more, lasts longer, prevents predators from biting body parts off through the mesh. I do not have stock in the company[​IMG]

    G’Day from down under thessalonchick [​IMG] Welcome!

    As you have already received links to some good starting points from Ken and good advice from Diva, I will just wish you all the best.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]
