In a distinct hexagonal pattern with no sharp edges, they will be kept safe and unable to hurt themselves on the galvanised steel netting.
Chicken Wire or Netting is a strong yet flexible material. As well as chicken coops it can be used for protecting small crops such as domestic vegetable gardens against pests.
