    Any advice on how to tighten the chicken wire to make the fence tight and not sag?

    Thanks,

    Look into the sort of tool used to stretch chain link fence. A few threads recently covered this issue.

    That small gauge chicken wire is almost imposible to stretch evenly.

    I found a bunch of pvc pipe laying around and used them as posts,and put one post every 8 ft,that should help it not look as sagged as much..

    Or you could go buy that heavyer gauged chicken wire,it doesnt sag at all!! I got a holt of 150' of 1" 5ft wire, I LOVE IT!! it is real stiff. and bugs fly into it and fall to my chickens snack lol
