Samantha LW, do you use avian netting?
If so, I'll probably use that seeing as it doesn't seem to break/snap easily. I'll put a wooden support in the middle, but where else should I attach the net to. The back fence in this picture is not mine, so I want to make sure I don't have anything attached to it.
Can you steal the swing set to use in the coop for support? Just kidding.
I think there will need to be some additional sturdy support system to support the avian(aka poultry) netting.
You can use the tree; I use nylon straps around mine to attach the coated wire to, to avoid tree damage. Someone else mentioned using old hoses around a tree.
You mention that you can put a center support piece in. That would be great, but you'll still need something to attach the netting to along the sides, even with zip ties. Maybe zip ties would be OK on the part of the back fence that isn't yours.
I've attached a pic of mine; the tree is in the middle, but the coated wires fans out to the the lower perimeter fence.
The bottom line is that you need some kind of support network for the avian netting.
