  • It discovered one location where the nails holding the wire to the fence were further apart, pushed its way down vertically, deforming the chicken wire.

    Decades ago, in another lifetime, we raised chickens... and had similar issues.

    We ended up building the frame, then applying the chicken wire... then applying another round of lumber on top of the chicken wire and the frame.

    The chicken wire gets sandwiched between two boards all the way around, completely eleminating the possibility to deform it.

    Make sure you attach the chicken wire as if it wasn't going to get the extra board on top. It should be secured by the nails... and the boards. Otherwise it is still possible to slide it around between the board sandwich. We also used those nails that are "U" shaped.

    Of course... there is always under.

    It's pretty damn hard to stop a hungry animal that has more time (and incentive) to throw at the problem than you do...
