Just got a very bad price shock with welded wire fencing: https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=199874 To add insult to injury, the wire said MADE IN CHINA and the quality was poor... the welds pop on any attempt to tension it between the posts. I called around and there was no fencing available that was not from China. So I had to leave it a little loose. So do your shopping and see if you can get old-stock fencing at pre-Obama prices. Or see if you can reuse some old fencing; prices of many things such as staple foods have doubled recently along with steel, which has made me a regular visitor to the local dump... there are some great finds there. They chip up used lumber, brush and trees, which makes excellent bedding.
