Material : 20 gauge wire galvanized, then a specially compounded UV resistant Black PVC is applied that will not become brittle even after years of exposure to the sun.
I have used chicken wire for many years on my farm & hatchery. All of the chicken wire I see sold in the local hardware stores and lumberyards is Galvanized, but not PVC coated. My experience is that chicken wire that is not PVC coated doesn't look very good from the day you put it up, starts rusting in about 5 years, is an eyesore in 7 or 8 years, and is falling apart in 10 years. The PVC coated wire I am selling is both attractive & durable. It will last at least twice as long as the uncoated wire available at your hardware store.

- Raising any type of poulty, pheasant, waterfowl, etc.
- Green house benches
- Poultry pens, flooring, cages, etc.
- Garden barrier.
- Pond barrier to keep the leaves out
- Deer fencing
The main purpose that I use this wire for on my farm is to cover up 2" x 4" welded wire and chainlink fence to keep the smaller varmints like weasels & minks, and wild birds out of my pens. Wild birds eat expensive feed, spread parasites and disease, then deficate in the water.
