    I am in College Station, glad to meet another Texan! I bought DuPont Bird Netting at Lowes for $5.18 per pkg. It is 14'x14' that covered my 10'x10' pvc pen. It is strong, withstands the wind well and attached with zip ties. They use this at the shopping center near where I live to keep the black birds (Grackles) out of the trees. I do see hawks sitting on wires nearby but so far, no problems with them.[​IMG] I have two Light Brahma pullets, three Cochins and 9 Black Copper Marans chicks.
