We're building our coop and need to secure the seams where two piece of chicken wire meet. How do we do that? Hoping for a way that's not weaving a kinky piece of wire through the holes all the way along the seam...

Thanks!

The only way I know is to weave away unless you use a post at that particular seam so you have something to staple too.
Or you can use wire ties I guess to attach.
Make sure you overlap for extra security.

Hi. We used hog clips along all of our seams--they work really good. You might be able to get them at Tractor Supply or at a local hardware store.

Are hog rings similar to the crimping rings used for rabbit cages? That's what we used.


I will say that we're getting better at building things around the size of the wire, instead of the other way around.

Hog clips are somewhat triangular in shape. You would need the crimping tool to squeeze them together. Sorry I do not have any pictures to show.

Oh... I know what you're talking about!
Naw... they're different from the rabbit clips, but similar in their uses. Either one works great, sounds like!
