    Hi

    I am building my first coop [​IMG] and am wondering--where can you find wire mesh/hardware cloth that is 4 feet tall??

    Check Home Depot, Lowe's or your local hardware store. Also look at CSNstores.com , keyword: hardware cloth (they have free shipping)

    It is very locally-random whether places in your area stock that width. It most certainly exists and is not especially rare though. If they don't have it on the shelves, talk to the people behind the counter (or at the customer service desk, for big box stores) and see if they can order it for you, assuming you want to buy at least 1 full roll.

    I've had the best luck doing special orders thru local feedstores, not thru hardware stores, but try whatever ya got.

    Good luck, have fun,

    Pat
