    I know most folks use 48" high electric netting for poultry (like this - http://www.premier1supplies.com/fencing.php?mode=detail&fence_id=30)

    However, I've got a line on some inexpensive electro-net used for sheep that's only 36" high and has 3"x6" holes. Would this be appropriate to keep out weasels, foxes, etc? The birds will live in a tractor as well but I'm thinking of double protection after loosing a dozen broilers to a digging fox last summer.

    Thanks.
