    From your experience what is the best 'brand' type of poultry wire to use. I'm asking this for a 12 x 20 foot run I plan on building that will have a height of about 7 foot. I know wire comes in rolls of 25', 50' or 100 foot. What about height wise? Better to use aluminum or plastic? I was thinking maybe plastic might hold up longer then read that squirrels would chew through it. So, what type is the best when it comes to value and price? [​IMG]
