here a few more tips!
1, easy to paint wire when still in a roll, i use 6 foot chicken netting the easiest way i have found to paint it is when still in a full roll with a spray gun.
2, if you have problems with rabbits or other animals that will dig under cage, dig a trench and start your cage a foot and a half in the ground.
3, we have parrots here that love to rip your buds to bits looking for seed, you can get away using plastic bird mesh for the top.
4, to join wire together i use small stick about 1" to 2" long, put netting next to each other along where u want join and twist the two together, this will form a good join and just slide stick out.
5, run a hot wire(electric fence around cage) this will keep possums from climbing up and eating any buds sticking out the top.
6, rat bait in a plastic tube is dgood for rodents, it keeps it dry so it lasts a lot longer, just a few in each cage or 1 in single plant cage
i will take photos on the stick twist, it is easy and quick.
pest i have to deal with pigs, deer, possums, rabbits, rats and mice, parrots
