Chicken Wire (also known as Poultry Wire Fence, Chicken Wire Mesh, Stainless Steel Chicken Wire, or Galvanized Chicken Wire) is a mesh of wire commonly used to fence poultry livestock. You can also buy chicken wire and fence posts to build a chicken coop or a garden fence around a vegetable or flower garden. The coated chicken wire is stronger than the standard galvanized chicken wire. The commercial term for Chicken Wire is Hex Netting. The products listed on our Hex Netting page are the same as the products listed here.
