We used bird netting from American Netting. It's been up for three years and it's holding up well.
The coop is on the left, the run on the right with the netting over it.
The back end near the gate has welded wire over it because we already had it so we used it. The rest is covered by the netting.

If he ends up there again, I swear i'm going to just leave him there.
My teacher trimmed his wings thismorning.... does that make them inable to fly? Should I just keep him as a pet? He would make a good pet <3 His name is Bucky <3 XD
I have a couple of pet doves. I keep them because I love the sounds they make. Mine are a ring neck and a diamond dove.

I have two Biel crosses and they seem to do fine in the heat. I've only had a pure bred Biel for a few weeks, long enough to get fertile eggs from him, so I don't know how different they are in terms of heat tolerance. I thought with their large combs they would be too bad in the heat.
