On average, chicken wire costs between $0.80 and $1.00 per linear foot. The size and type of material are the main factors in determining the cost of chicken wire.
Chicken wire is made of thin, flexible, galvanized wire or galvanized wire that has a plastic vinyl coating. The regular galvanized chicken wire is generally less expensive than the coated chicken wire. A 10-foot roll of chicken wire usually costs less than $10. A 25-foot roll usually costs about $20. It is more expensive overall, but it is cheaper per linear foot. Brand name has little effect on the cost of chicken wire. Most brands are about equal in terms of price, as of 2015.
