Hey everyone :wave:

I have recently bought one of these www.ebay.co.uk/itm/6-or-8-24-wide-panel-sided-pet-dog-puppy-guinea-pig-rabbit-exercise-play-pen-/350761354139?pt=UK_Home_Garden_Kitchen_Steamers_Co okers_PP&var=&hash=item51ab01839b
I remember reading quite a few threads about meshing the outside of the pen, can anyone recommend the best material to use? I did try chicken wire but where I had to cut the pieces the ends where really sharp. I want to mesh it as the gaps are quite big, they don't bend but I'm worried about them getting there head stuck. Also the pen is up against the g pigs hutch and they like to chew through to the wood of the hutch.

Thanks :D

Weldmesh is stronger than chicken mesh, you can get sharp edges where you cut it (found this out wrestling with a huge roll to mesh the run, managed to gash my hand :roll::cry:) but if you cut it to a whole square I've found it ok.

I'm trying to find the mesh I used as it didn't leave shape edges

If i find it I'll post it on here
