    Anyone know where to find this?
    Or is this width not made? I'll even do mail order if necessary. DH doesn't want to nail any more boards and we're not sure how to overlap?

    Lowes, Home Depot and Tractor Supply, no luck
    Only 4 feet tall.

    many thanks Chicken Experts!!!

    Get 6ft & burry a foot of it underground. Problem solved & will help deter predators that dig. [​IMG]

    I am pretty sure we got ours at Tractor Supply? Maybe your TSC is just out of stock?

    Our local farmer's cooperative carries it --- I just bought 7 150' rolls of 5' wire to fence in our new chicken yard.

    I don't know if co-ops are an Alabama thing or not.

    We used the 4 ft and I think 3ft and wired them together. It's tall enough to stand in and we also covered the top with chicken wire so they couldn't fly out. We are planning on making a border of partially buried hardware cloth, probably folded outward and recovered with sod since there are too many tree roots to dig too deep where the coop is.

    Thanks to all!!!
    I'll try two more TSCs tomorrow. And we do have co-ops, I never thought of that.

    FREDSTER: Please post pix of your run when completed, it sounds enormous!!
