Im slowly, but surely upgrading my chicken digs. What is the best thing to cover the top of the run with? I plan to build the run like someone on here did. (Whomevers it is, I hope you dont mind me using it here. If you do, please let me know.) I hate using chicken wire! Plus I would prefer something a little cheaper per ft. I was looking around online and came across aviary netting. Would something like this work? Ive seen different sized netting. What would be the best size? I live in Central Texas so it gets pretty hot here during the summers. Never any snow and have rainy winters sometimes. I would also like to cover part(either 1/4 or 1/2) of the run with something that would provide shade for my girls. Right now Im using a blue tarp, but would much rather use something more "appealing to the eye" if you know what I mean.
