Gamebird and aviary netting for hawk deterrent?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I've read that netting will have limited results for hawks, but wanted a bit more feedback if possible.  We lost 4 birds to hawks in February and have had them in lock down since them.  We've put up some cable wire and were going to put up netting over this, but I was just reading that this might not stop the hawks.   

 

We are interested in something that is a good price but will also keep hawks out.   One post mentioned the green/orange plastic fencing?   Any thoughts would be appreciated.   Our little wyandotte bantams apparently make a nice meal.   :barnie

 

Happy Spring!

We live on the Great Egg Harbor River on the edge of the Pine Barrens, in NJ.  We have a small flock of Chocolate Wyandotte Bantams - our initial trio came from Jerry Foley, and now have some black Wyandotte bantams from James Konecny.  We are combining these lines for outcrossing - now on our fourth generation, with some decent results.  We are NPIP & AI certified and show occasionally. ...

I have been reading on the aviary netting. I plan on putting that on mine next week. There is a company that sells netting in different sizes on eBay and swears that is his some tough stuff.
