This photo shows the construction of a welded mesh chicken compound, intended to be fox resistant. It uses a lengths of 4ft x 10g at the bottom, with 3ft x 12g joined in the middle with 'c' clips, to produce a 7ft high fence. At the bottom, lengths of 12g have been cut off the roll to make 18" aprons, clipped to the bottom of the fence, upon which rubble has been piled to prevent burrowing. The welded mesh is attached by staples to the wooden posts which are set into 60cm Metposts, making a stable, intruder resistant compound.
