    Will 1/2 inch hardware cloth be small enough or do you think I need to go down to 1/4, and will 2 feet be high enough. Thanks

    Hey Laura,
    I think the 1/2 would be fine, but I would go with at least 3' high.

    Actually, I guess it depends on what it's going to be.

    Brooder = 1/2 still, 2' hight will be good

    Anything other than a brooder, I would go with the original figure of at least 3' high
