Don’t Count Your Chickens Before They Are Meshed

Anyone remembers that kind of wire netting, with repeating hexagonal patterns ?  Yes, it is Chicken Wire Mesh, or simply Chicken Wire.   How did you use it ?

Many years ago, this kind of galvanized steel wire netting was very popular in the kampong.   Due to its low cost, flexibility and ease of cutting and forming, it found widespread use –  besides keeping our fowls from accidentally wandering into our neighbors’ cooking pots, or laying their eggs elsewhere.  LOL !

We also used it to build a fence – with wooden frames – around my kampong house, mainly to keep out stray dogs and unwanted guests.  The mesh itself was not very strong – a dog could bite through if it was determined enough, especially if some corrosion had set in.
