Curious if anyone has used cattle panels vs hog panels? I think they’re the same just taller.

At our farm supply, the cattle panels seem to have much larger squares, might be large enough for chickens to get through.
I have seen many different styles, but if you can find taller panels that will work, the means possibly less joining.

Oh I just assumed id add wire for security. The panels were just the structure. I think at certain stages chickens could get through even hog panels

For sure, I should have clarified that. Yes, I can the chicken wire fence up the first 3 feet as shown here...

The panels they call "Cattle Panels" at out local supply had massive openings though, much more than what is shown above.
I was worried that chickens / turkeys might try to fly right out! This never happened with the Hog Panels and the chicken wire fencing.
