bought 4 pieces rough 2x4 redwoord and ripped them down to build this frame. Wire tomorrow.

Staples? or is something more robust needed? It is redwood, so I'm concerned staples might be too easy to pull out. Should I wrap the wire around the corner and then staple?

Yes, wrap wire around and use heavy duty staples, long enough for good penetration. Chickens won't be hard on wire but moving it around will be, or other animals, kids etc

pasta514, I like the looks of your frame - I plan on building one or two like that for my chicks. I have the wire, now need to get the framing. I will probably use staples.
