I am building a daytime "playpen" run for my chickens, who currently stay in a very secure but fairly small coop and run enclosure 24/7. I'd like to give them a little more room to run and stretch their wings, and have a dog kennel I'm planning to use. The girls will only be in this run during the day and at times when I am home, so I'm not too worried about security. I do want to get a net to put over the top to keep hawks out and the hens inside, and am wondering what you all use to cover your runs when you use net. My suburban backyard is fairly densely wooded with very secure fencing, for what that's worth, and I have never seen any hawks in my area during the day, although I'm sure they're there. (I've been told they won't dive through the branches in thickly-wooded areas unless they're sure they can get what they're aiming for.)
What material is your net?
Most importantly, where did you find it? I can't locate seem to locate anything in town, so I'll most likely have to get something online.
Thanks for your input!
