A bird’s-eye view of the chicken wire fence

  • July 7, 2021

A chicken wire fencing system in New York City was the first chicken wire to be installed in the United States, and it cost less than $1,000.

Now, that fence is being installed across the nation as a way to keep chickens away from other birds. 

The chicken wire system was installed by a contractor, and the New York Times reports the project has cost $1.5 million.

The New York Post reports that the fence was built by the American Humane Association.

“The chicken wires are designed to prevent birds from getting between chicken wire and the fence and they can be removed in a matter of seconds,” said Jennifer McBride, president and CEO of the Humane Society of the United Kingdom, a non-profit that has installed more than 6,000 chicken wire fences across the United State.

“It’s a great way to reduce the amount of poultry that are caught in the wire fencing, which is a huge environmental concern.

Chicken wire fencing is a proven, cost-effective, and easy-to-use system.”

Chicken wire fencing also reduces the amount and amount of water runoff that can enter a backyard, McBride said.

The Humane Society is also working with local governments and businesses to install more chicken wire in their communities.

The chickenwire system is not just for chickens, but for other animals as well.

A chicken net that’s built into a fence can be used to prevent dogs from crossing into a yard.

The fence also keeps cats from entering homes.

And, chickens can be housed in the same area as other animals, which helps keep them out of the fence.
