    I just ordered a 48" x 50' roll of chicken wire from Amazon Prime for 20.99 with free two day shipping. They also have 36" x 50' for 14.99.

    Are you talking about chicken wire or hardware cloth specifically?

    I second this. Chicken wire is pretty much useless, unless you're trying to keep chickens away from each other. It won't keep anything else in or out.

    All chicken wire is not created equal. The problem with cheap chicken wire is you are getting what you pay for. Which as a lot of backyard members have found out the hard way puts their chickens lives in jeapardy not only from wild predators but from domestic pets. My advice is do a bit of research and find something that is in your price range and able to protect your chickens.

    Hardware cloth is the best, and reinforced with woven wire fencing helps a lot also. Chicken wire is a waste of money and effort as a predator deterent. Mary
