Wire Mesh For Chickens
Galvanised steel wire mesh for chickens are the most popular type of garden mesh. We keep our stock volumes high, meaning that it is available for immediate dispatch off the shelf.
Galvanised chicken wire is used the world over as garden netting due to it’s economical price, light-weight but long-lasting properties and it’s versatility.
This mesh has a hexagonal shaped hole, which will prevent birds from entering and damaging vegetable patch crops including fruit bushes, salads and newly planted seedlings.
All of our mesh netting is simple to use. We suggest that you use u-nails to attach to the timber fencing posts that you make up fruit and veg cages. This hexagonal wire mesh is produced with hot dipped galvanised steel. Galvanising the steel protects the steel metal from rusting and increases the life of the roll for outdoor use.
This chicken wire is made of mild steel that has been hot dipped in a zinc layer coating for a galvanised finish which protects it from outdoor elements. As it has zinc coating it is perfect for appliances such as chicken coops and rabbit runs, garden fencing, fruit cages and much more.
Galvanised chicken mesh is normally a metallic grey colour but it can also come in a green PVC coating in the same mesh specs, this is to give 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.
Please note that ‘Galvanised Steel’ and ‘Galvanized Steel’ refer to the exact same finish. This mesh netting type is not available in stainless steel.
Wire Mesh Construction
Chicken wire netting is constructed 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.

Customers are advised 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 it is used. As a rule we advise that metal mesh should last 10 years in the right circumstances.
