I know chicken wire is the accepted material but has anyone tried the diamond mesh plastic construction fence? It looks pretty solid. I know rabbits might chew it but I'm thinking just of a small puppy pen where the rabbits might be put in each time rather than permanent residents. Trying to keep the cost down and see if there's any interest in starting pups for others..

I have 3/4 an acre fenced in with chain link it keeps adult rabbits in but young rabbits can get through it. I put rabbit in when I work with my pups and take out when finished. One day I will run chicken wire around the bottom.
