    What are poultry staples?
     
  2. in what sense of the word are you meaning?

    Staples as in necessities in a first aid kit?

    or

    Staples as in those that attach chicken wire to wood?

    Wood staples
     
  4. I didn't know there was specific "poultry staples." I just use 1/2" or 1" staples and a staple gun to attach poultry wire, or wire mesh.

    are poultry staples. They are of much heavier gauge and installed with a hammer. I just bought 1 lb for less than $3.00 at my Home Improvement Store.

    Until a coon comes along and tears them out.

    They are commercial grade construction grab staple... they are deep and ridged so they don't pull out... not like a hand stapler. I've seen my husband yank on it... it ain't moving!

    Ever seen a coon pull out a 1" staple?

    Yeah, me neither.
