My wire doesn't even say what it is. It just says 1/2 x 1" 10' rabbit cage wire and they had 1x2" rabbit cage wire. That's the only info on the label. I don't really want to ship in wire but I may at least have to ship in the floor wire. Every other location for wire had no better than 19 gauge. I believe in very southern east Iowa there was a company with all sorts of wire and containment materials. Only place with electric poultry netting I was looking for at the time and it was free shipping for Iowa and northern IL at least for various poultry nettings. Not sure about actual wire. I'd have to find it again.
Most people aren't building on the ground. The logistics are a little different for hanging or stacking cages. The main issue is that there is no other support for the rabbit's feet. Bigger than 1x1/2 can cause hock sores even with resting boards.
