I have a couple of rolls of a wire that is probably 1/2 inch square openings, welded, and I've seen it used on rabbit cages. I used it inside my new coop to separate the birds from the feed room. Can this wire be strong enough to be buried outside the run to keep out predators? I would nail it securely to the bottom all the way around the coop as well as the outside run, dig a trench and bury it at least a foot underground, then turn it up, place shards of limestone rock on it, and fill in the trench. My coop sits low to the ground so this would keep vermin from going under the building. The wire does not rust, decay or break down even after five years or more of being out in the earth and weather. There is another stronger heavier gauge wire that is 1" x 1/2" that is fairly pricey, but it will rust. We've always called it rabbit wire. My biggest threats are red and grey foxes, weasels, coons, possums, feral cats, and maybe an occasional coyote as they are just starting to arrive in my area. What do y'all think of it for the use I mentioned - is it strong enough?
