TSC has 7'x110' for 20 bucks. Is this enough to cover a 40x30 pen?

Quote:7' x 110' = 770 square feet

40' x 30' = 1200 square feet.

Two would cover it. One will not.

Depends on the height....ridgerunner your calculation is wrong 30x40 is 1200 but that is just one wall..

if you make your pen 25'x25' it will work.

Quote:I take it that this is to cover the top of a pen to protect against hawks, not make a wall. You could be right.

The pen is the chainlink kennel that all my chickens are in, I can't shrink it. It's been there for like 4 years I was thinking of making a smaller pen with wire and just topping that

She needs lineal feet, not square feet. 40x 30 would be 140 lineal feet. She would be 30 feet short. The max she could go with a 110' roll would be 30'x25' wich would be 110'

Is it for the walls or the top?

Top, the sides are chainlink 6' tall. We are putting chicken wire at the bottom to protect heads
