Green Chicken Wire Mesh
The Mesh Company green chicken wire is manufactured from galvanised steel wire that is then coated with PVC. Green PVC mesh is especially pleasing to the eye and more subtle in outdoor environments than the galvanised steel equivalent. Having the coating will extend the product’s lifespan and make it safer than a standard galvanised mesh for use around animals.
Green mesh chicken wire is a versatile choice for any farm or garden. With hole sizes ranging from 13mm to 50mm, there are options for various needs, whether it be keeping small animals out or creating a trellis for plants to climb. Available in rolls of 400mm to 1200mm wide, there is a size for any project. The top-quality material ensures durability and longevity, while the great prices make it an affordable option. Plus, with rapid dispatch, you can get started on your project in no time. Upgrade your fencing and gardening with green mesh chicken wire.
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.

Does Chicken Wire Deter Predators?
It does offer deterrent, however it all depends on how it is applied. Many predators are digging animals, so make sure to run the mesh around the outer areas of your coop and then bury with dirt.
In the UK, common predators that may threaten chickens and other small animals include foxes, badgers, and birds of prey.
Foxes are a significant threat to chickens in the UK and are known for their ability to dig under and climb over fences. While green PVC chicken wire may provide some level of deterrence, it may not be strong enough to prevent a determined fox from breaking through. Additionally, badgers are known to dig under fencing, so it’s important to ensure that any fencing or netting is installed securely and deep enough to prevent digging. We employed a heavy duty welded mesh below the surface on our test project ‘Cluckingham Palace’ to be extra secure.
Birds of prey such as hawks and owls can also pose a threat to chickens and other small animals. Your designs will need to include a roof to protect against airiel threats.
Will Green PVC Chicken Wire Deter Rats?
Green PVC chicken wire may provide some level of deterrence against rats, but it is important to note that rats can be persistent and skilled pests. They may be able to chew through or climb over chicken wire if the design does not take their threat into account.
Additionally, rats have strong teeth that can chew through many materials, including PVC coatings on chicken wire. If you are looking to protect your chicken coop from rats the it may be worth considering alternative materials such as hardware cloth or rat-proof wire mesh. These materials are typically stronger and more resistant to damage from rats, providing a higher level of protection. More importantly, the holes are smaller, which makes it harder for rodents to chew through.
How Long Should Green PVC Chicken Mesh Last?
Generally, well-made green PVC chicken mesh can last up to 10 years or more with proper care and maintenance. This can include regular cleaning to remove debris and build-up, checking for signs of damage or wear, and ensuring that the mesh is properly installed and secured.
However, it’s important to note that exposure to harsh weather conditions such as extreme heat, cold, or moisture, as well as exposure to chemicals or corrosive materials, can reduce the lifespan of green PVC chicken mesh.
To maximize the lifespan of green PVC chicken mesh, it’s important to select a high-quality mesh from The Mesh Company, as we are renowned for the quality of our wire mesh. Ensure that it is installed properly and securely, and take steps to protect it from damage or wear over time.
