I have found a guy locally who builds coops. I'm considering going this route due to my limited carpentry skills and the fact that I need it to look decent since I live in a city neighborhood. He said he usually uses heavy guage 1x2 galvinized welded wire when building coops. Isn't that too big? If so, what size should I be asking for? Thanks for all of your help! I'm so glad I found this site!
