Hi, I'm new to keeping chickens. I'm moving to a place where I can do this.
My neighbor is up the hill said his flock slowly disappeared from hawk predation. My land has a pine tree canopy..
If I want to put a roof on my chicken run, could I use the fine plastic mesh that people use to cover their trees and grapes?
Do hawks concentrate so intensely that they would only see their target, and miss seeing the mesh?
I can't afford wire mesh. I realize that two-inch poultry mesh would work great, and 2X4 welded wire mesh would, too.
