proper way to put down stucco


I live in So.Ca and i'm having my house re-stuccoed including 2 wooden gables.What is the proper procedure to stucco over a wooden surface to prevent cracking in the finish.. The way my guys did it was paper, wire & brown coat.Unfortunately the brown coat developed some cracks and my concern is that it will eventually show in the stucco itself.Thanks in advace for any answers.:confused:
