    I got it at Lowes. But, we already replaced it with regular chicken wire, it doesn't hold up to well and rips easily. I did like it at first though and it does keeps the birds from flying out which was my main concern at the time. Now my concern is fall leafs and snow and I know it won't hold up to. Good Luck!

    Here in NY I just got mine yesterday at Home Depot. Are you looking for the thin netting that goes over the top of the run? I just paid $19.99 for a 7' x 100' roll. It's called Deer Block protective mesh covering and it's in the GARDEN area.

    For the sides I got a heavier plastic mesh that I use for a temporary run also at Home Depot in the FENCING aisle.

    They don't have the stakes though. I found those at a local feed store. They are plastic with one spike that goes into the ground really easy...I have tons of rocks here. Then the mesh hooks onto the stake. I move it once a week.

    I bought mine at a garden centre, where they sell in/outdoor plants, rocks, and other landscaping products, and pond stuff. If you want to come to Chatham, I;ll tell you exactly where to get it [​IMG].

    But I hear ya--I had a difficult time locating it too. I do know that places that cater to ponds and such usually sell it to keep the herons and cranes out of the ponds.

    When I went looking for mine, I asked the employees there (Home depot) and they had no Idea what I was talking about. [​IMG] So..I just walked and walked up and down the isles until I found it in the Garden area like others have said. I then showed said employees what it was in case some other poor soul came in asking for it. [​IMG]
