    we are planning on putting large holed netting over the run to keep the hens in and hawks out. im curious if a chicken tried to fly up to escapee could they ever get their head caught in the netting?

    Usually the openings in the netting you can buy is too small for a chicken to get her head through - but they can get thier feet in it.

    I wouldn't worry too much about this though.
