Fox Protection

Fox Protection

To protect chickens and other poultry from foxes, you need to select a strong welded mesh to prevent the foxes from creating a hole in the fence. We would suggest using either a 50mm x 50mm hole knotted fence with a 16 gauge wire (1.6mm thick wire), or a 50mm x 50mm hole welded mesh with a 14 gauge wire (2mm thick wire).

Standard chicken wire or light-weight welded mesh is not strong enough to keep out determined foxes.


Foxes are good climbers so you will need to create a roof, and also peg the mesh to the ground so they cannot push underneath.
