    I have some 2x4" wire laying around, can I use some of this on my run and coop?

    You can use this wire, but predators like coons can and will reach through this and grab birds. It is a good strong foundation wire to use if you are in a high pred. area. I have used this wire overlayed with poultry mesh to discourage varmits from getting an arm into the pens.
