There are many different chicken fencing options on the market. If you need to create fences to keep your chickens in a certain area, our fences are for you.


Here's why.


Our chicken fence is effective, but virtually invisible from a distance. It is designed to be as invisible as possible, blending in with your existing landscape.

Completely non-electric, no wires to break, no parts to fail over time. A true physical barrier that allows chickens to enter.

Our chicken fences are very customizable. Choose the right strength, height, chew resistance, opening size, etc. for your project. This includes chicken fence gates from 3 feet wide to 24 feet wide, thicker corner/end posts (if applicable), tensioning for your chicken fence, and more.

Renting a room? Need a temporary chicken fence or removable chicken fence for grazing? All of our chicken fences with grounding sleeves can be permanently installed or removed as needed. Use the included locking set screws to loosen our fence posts.

We make installation of our chicken fences quick and easy. Regular posts and gates use ground sleeves, corner posts and driveway gates use large ground sleeves and do not require a concrete foundation. Posts are secured with locking set screws inside each sleeve. Installing large areas takes a fraction of the time of traditional fencing. Most customers install this type of fence on their own without a contractor.

Chicken Fence FAQ

What is the best chicken fence?

The best chicken fences are strong enough to keep chickens out and predators in. Permanent chicken fences are usually made of one inch or less of metal, while removable chicken fences are usually made of polypropylene, which is a type of plastic. Polyethylene chicken fences are lighter and easier to move than heavier, all-metal chicken fences.

How do you build a chicken fence?

Chicken fences are made from support posts, rolls of fencing material and hardware. The grounding sleeve is first driven into the ground with a sledgehammer, then the posts are slid into the grounding sleeve and secured with locking set screws. The fencing material can be attached directly to the post with fence ties or to a tension cable that provides additional support. Chicken fencing can be buried at the bottom of the fence or overlapped and staked to the ground to prevent predators from pushing up under the fence or digging under the fence.

What is the easiest chicken fence to install?

The easiest permanent chicken fence to install uses a grounding sleeve. The grounding sleeve is first driven into the ground with a sledgehammer, then the posts are slid into the grounding sleeve and secured with locking set screws. These posts can be permanent or removable. Chicken fences with tensioning are not removable. Chicken fences without overlap are easier to remove than chicken fences with overlap.

What are chicken fences made of?

Chicken wire fencing are usually made of black polypropylene plastic or black PVC-coated galvanized steel. Here is some information on each.

Polypropylene plastic chicken fence: The opening size can be used as a physical barrier and ranges from 400 pounds per square foot breaking strength to 1400 pounds per square foot breaking strength. Higher strength versions of this poly chicken fence can repel most animals running at any speed. Click here to purchase our chicken fence rolls

Metal chicken wire fencing: Small to large opening sizes of wire fencing in a variety of thicknesses and strengths. This wire fencing can be welded or woven. The woven wire is bent into shape by machine and can be knotted like traditional field fencing or twisted like traditional hexagonal wire (chicken wire). Metal chicken fences can be plain galvanized or galvanized painted black or galvanized then black vinyl coated. Galvanizing can be done before weaving or welding or after welding or weaving (galvanized after welding/weaving, welded joints are also covered with zinc for best rust resistance). Some of the more common knotted metal animal fences are graded with smaller opening sizes 2 "x4" wire spacing at the bottom to larger 4" opening sizes wire spacing at the top. This and other large opening size wire fences can trap animals that run into the fence and cause injury or death. Wire chicken fences with two-inch opening sizes or smaller are much less harmful to animals and are just as effective. The black vinyl coated version of this metal chicken fence is also not as visible as the black polypropylene chicken fence. It is not as rust resistant as polypropylene, but can last from 5 to 25 years, depending on the type of coating. Metal chicken fences are very strong, ranging from 800 pounds breaking strength for woven wire hex (chicken wire) types to over 2,000 pounds per square foot for some welded wire types. 1 "x1" or smaller metal can also be used as a chewing barrier or rodent barrier at the bottom of a poly chicken fence. Two-inch opening sizes or smaller wire chicken fences are much less damaging to animals and just as effective. The black vinyl coated version of this metal chicken fence is also not as visible as the black polypropylene chicken fence. It is not as rust resistant as polypropylene, but can last from 5 to 25 years, depending on the type of coating.

How tall does a chicken fence need to be?

Chicken wire fencing need to be 4 to 7 1/2 feet tall. The height of this chicken fence depends on different factors, such as the length of the fence and the type of animals you are trying to keep out - or whether you only keep chickens.

4 feet high for areas where the customer is rearing chickens

Most permanent chicken fences are 6 to 7 1/2 feet tall, with or without a top.

How sturdy does a chicken fence need to be?

Depending on your application, chicken fences need to have a breaking strength of 400 pounds to 950 pounds or more. The strength of a chicken fence is determined by taking a one foot by one foot sample of fence material and pulling it onto a calibrated machine with clamps that run along the entire top and bottom of the sample until it breaks. Generally, the higher the fracture strength, the better the protection that may or may not be required. In general.

For grazing areas, customers typically use our 700 poly. which is a good balance between economy and strength. the 1100 poly is similar, but more expensive.

For permanent grazing areas around chicken coops, the most popular mesh is 1x1 metal mesh. It is strong, is metal and will deter most animals.

For chicken coops, the most popular chicken fence to install on your coop is 1/2x1/2 black PVC coated steel mesh.

The best way to keep snakes out of the chicken area is 1/4x1/4 - this will keep out almost every snake.

What is chicken or bird netting?

Chicken or bird netting is commonly used by customers who keep wild birds or other birds of prey. This is a larger opening size net, usually knotted nylon. It is usually hung on top of a metal-sided fence. The large opening size is not helpful to predators and this type of net is mainly used to keep birds from flying out.

How much does chicken fencing cost?

The price of chicken fencing ranges from $1 per foot to $10 per foot or more, depending on the width and type of chicken fence and if you purchase only chicken fence rolls or complete chicken fence kits. A roll of polypropylene chicken fencing will cost less than all metal chicken fencing.
