Chicken Wire Netting-Galvanised Steel
Chicken wire is a hot-dipped galvanised hexagonal wire netting fencing for chicken runs, chicken cages, poultry fencing and fruit cages. Suregreen supply 4 mesh holes sizes, 13mm, 25mm, 31mm and 50mm (½", 1", 1¼" & 2").
Chicken netting is a steel wire mesh that has been zinc coated through galvanisation and is commonly used to fence poultry (chickens and turkeys) and livestock in a chicken run or chicken coop. Other uses:
- Chicken runs, chicken coops
- Poultry fencing
- Garden boundary fences
- Deer mesh fence
- Rabbit fencing
- Plastering and render support
Chicken wire netting is available in 0.7mm and 1mm diameter steel wire (22 gauge and 19 gauge). Chicken wire is commonly used to build inexpensive and spacious cages for small animals. Hexagonal steel wire netting makes a perfect fencing for protecting gardens and crops from browsing animals including chickens, ducks, rabbits, hare and deer.

Installing chicken wire fencing
Chicken wire fencing netting should be installed between rounded wooden fence posts which should be as close as possible to get a stable fence. Suregreen suggest a diameter of 50mm to 75mm for the posts. The height of post depends on the height of fencing you are installing. Fix the metal fencing mesh to the posts using galvanised u-nails. Use our straining line wire to tension the chicken fencing at the top of the fence to make it strong, stable and taut. For wider width fencing, an additional staining line wire may be neccessary to install in the middle of the wire netting. The base of the chicken wire fence netting should ne fixed using galvanised ground pegs so that there are no gaps for animals to get under the fence.
