    I am about to build a mobile run big enough for 10 chickens including 1 roo. I was wondering if aviary netting would be a safe way to do this? The main predator issue I have is hawks.
    I do not know much about the netting. If I am building a mobile run with this, what is the best way to frame it, what about nest boxes, and how can I provide a bit of shelter?
    Is it worth the ease of using or should I just go all out with hardware cloth?

    Thanks!!

    If you want them to be safe go with the hardware cloth its expensive but peace of mind goes a long way in my book.
