Hi MMH, Question? I have been wondering were the old type brooder screen can be found? It is not sq. but round wire woven screen. I have used hardware cloth. Seems that's what everyone is using. I find it very ruff on the feet and legs of the chickens and have pulled them. I want to use poop screens but not with this type of feet damage. That said the meat birds(CX) have shown the worst. Any suggestions or insight?
Thanx.

it is the only round screen stuff I know of --- but I am not sure it will work for what you want - I never had poop screens

I have a "poop shelf" below my hens' roosts. It is made of an assortment of old boards. I cover it with empty feed bags. They are fairly easy to pick up by the corners and dump on the compost pile. When the hens finish a bag of feed, they get a clean liner!

try at a your local metal shop its called expanded metal and comes in different hole sizes I do believe as far as burrs on the metal if you have a wire brush use it to knock off the burrs
