Chicken Wire Netting
Chicken wire with a coating of PVC is ideal where fencing or protecting crops is required, it is also discreet therefore it’s great for blending in with your garden, a hedge or any grassy area. Mesh can also be used at the bottom of tall fences, keeping out rabbits and other animals.
Similar to the galvanised chicken wire mesh, our Green PVC garden netting mesh is constructed in a hexagonal shape pattern for maximum reinforcement and can be bent and manipulated into any shape required.
Core Material – Mild Steel
Finish – Galvanised Wire Core with Green PVC Coating
Chicken wire netting is made by constructing it in a distinctive yet effective hexagonal pattern to have a strong, reinforced frame. At the same time it is also long lasting and can be easily manipulated into the format you want it.
The hexagonal mesh shape also means it can prevent larger garden animals such as chickens, rabbits and cats from getting through certain gaps or areas that require protection or are out of bounds. Please note that this mesh is not welded mesh, which we also sell in galvanised steel through our welded mesh section.
After conducting strenuous market research we decided to specialise in shorter length rolls. The result of this is that our 13mm galvanised steel chicken wire rolls are easier on the pocket and leave our customers will less left over netting once their project is completed. We offer a wide range of options for mesh specifications and roll dimensions. Here are the options that we have available for this wire fencing product:
- Our standard roll lengths are 5 metres (16.5ft) and 10 metres (33ft)
- Our standard roll widths are 600mm (2ft), 900mm (3ft) and 1200mm (4ft)
Galvanised chicken mesh is normally a metallic grey colour but it can also come in a green PVC coating in the same mesh specs. The green PVC coating gives extra protection and reinforcement for even more longer lasting use; but mainly it is brilliant for camouflage. This is available through our chicken wire section in various hole sizes.
Advising customers that the life expectancy of galvanised wire netting is determined by the amount of wear and tear it is subjected to and the environment in which you are using it in. As a rule we advise that metal mesh should last 10 years in the right circumstances.

How to build a chicken coop using chicken mesh wire
Ideally, you should provide both a chicken coop and a chicken run to ensure your chickens have a place to sleep and lay eggs comfortably whilst being able to run around, forage and bathe happily.
This all seems like a daunting project to start from scratch, especially for those who have never built one before, however we are here to make it as easy as possible for you.
What is the best mesh for a chicken coop?
Typically, a chicken mesh coop is constructed from galvanised steel or PVC-coated chicken wire which is made by shaping the wire into hexagonal holes.
PVC-coated chicken wire is essentially just galvanised steel chicken wire with a coloured plastic coating. This is often beneficial as it blends into your garden environment better and it also is less harmful to chickens as the coating allows protection against sharp wire edges.
These are the best kind of meshes to use as it has a strong structure to keep out predators such as foxes therefore giving them the ultimate protection whilst allowing great ventilation as well as a view over the garden.
The hexagon structure wire netting comes in a few different hole sizes such as 13mm, 25mm, 31mm and 50mm in both galvanised steel and PVC-coated chicken wire.
In addition, you could also use galvanised welded wire mesh. This has a strong linear structure for good protection and electric fencing as a second layer of safety for your chickens. This does not come in a PVC-coated option.
What other materials you need to build a chicken coop?
As well as your chosen chicken wire mesh, you will also require:
- Wooden fence panels – for the chicken coop frame
- Screws – for putting the frame together
- Hinges and U-Pins/staples – to make fencing and a doorway for your chicken coop
- Wood chips – to be the floor base for your chickens to run on
What tools do you require for building a chicken coop?
- Spade – for digging area for chicken coop and chicken run to put wood chips in
- Spirit level – for making sure your frame is straight
- Ruler and pen – for marking points to saw the wooden panels
- Drill and/or screwdriver – for screwing the wood panels together
- Hammer – for adding nails into wooden panels

Not all of these building tools are required depending on what you want to use, this is just a guide on what is suitable for building a chicken coop and chicken run.
How many chickens will fit inside a chicken coop?
Based on the size of your chicken coop determines how many chickens you could keep inside, it is recommended to have 4 sq feet for each chicken in the coop and 10 sq feet for each chicken in the run. For example, a 4 x 8ft chicken coop would allow up 10 chickens.
