    you could use wiring but if you are worried about fox getting in I suggest a electric fencing but my coop the chickens get locked into the coop so even if the fox got into the fencing he cant get into the coop itself.

    Chicken wire will perhaps keep the birds in, but will keep nothing out. As such it is a waste of your time and money. Uses for chicken wire are very limited. Hardware cloth works well, some of the 6 foot wire net rolls looks to be good as well. Bad fence will lead to heartache, and no where else.
