hi, I'm looking to build my bunnies and chickens new runs as we are moving house soon and was wondering where you all buy your mesh.

We got our last lot at b&q but it was so expensive! I'm just a little concerned about the quality with buying online so any reviews would be great.

thanks
Kat :)

Ebay tends to be the cheapest place for mesh.

i also would like some mesh but for around my garden so my bun can have the whole garden to run around in but in local stores it is only massive farmers mesh

I've just built a picket fence with gate (wickes) for my run and lined it with wire mesh from Wilkinsons. It was £3.99 for 60cm x 150cm. They have different sizes etc on their website. Sorry, can't do links ! The wire tacks came from Homebase or Focus £1.99 for pack of 50.

I got a roll for £20 from Homebase. It was 0.9metres high by about 6metres I think. It did my run anyway :)

thanks, that's more like it!
My last roll was about £25 for 6mx0.9m which isn't going to go very far for an 8x6 run and a walk in 12x4 run!

If you're concerned about quality when buying online, you can generally go by the wire gauge...19 is the minimum thickness you can use to make it fox-proof, 16 is very thick and good quality (the lower the figure the thicker the mesh)

are either of those okay? I'm planning a run at the moment and need about 12mx0.9m of mesh.

The rabbits would probably chew the plastic off the PVC coated mesh. Go for the second one.

Yeah realised that after I'd posted ^^

The second one I'd need two I think for the run I want to make. Altogether looks like the wood and mesh will come to just under £40 for a 3ft x 6 ft x 7ft run.

If anyone still needs some wire mesh you could try getting it from here:

woven wire (http://www.perforated-wire-mesh.com/woven-wire-mesh.asp)
