Unwrapping a roll of chicken wire

5 foot role of chicken wire being unwrapped

These 5 foot high rolls of chicken wire are my new favorite form of poultry corralling.

Our local independently owned hardware store special ordered them for us. The highest chicken wire I was able to find at Lowe's was only 3 feet long and cost almost as much as the bigger roll.

If you look closely you can see 2 separate strands of slightly thinner wire holding the roll together.  What I've found works best is to cut that thinner wire somewhere around the middle and start pulling. Do this again for the other thin wire and you're ready to start fencing in your flock.
