    After research here it seems alot of people use it.I would'nt have thought plastic could do the job. So where does every one generally get the best prices?

    It's only really good to keep chickens from flying out, and hawks from flying in. (Usually. I've read reports of hawks ripping through very flimsy netting).

    Does ZERO good against predators that will climb your fence such as raccoons, possums, dogs, etc.

    Good luck, have fun,

    I was looking up netting last night...I came across this website lastnite bennersgardens.com... after that goto the fencing section...depending on your exact needs they also have a fence called garden fence that may work for you...I have also seen some mentioned on here from Home Depot it is yellow netting type of plastic fence

    Is it useable if applied as a top as well as sides? If not I'll go wire all the way around and over but probably not through

    It is only useable as a top. No point in using it for pen sides, you may as well just invite the predators over and hand them silverware and bibs.

    I found some at the hardware store 1/2 price in the fall. But that probably wont do you anygood now. As others pointed out, it does work well for deer,but notfor next door neighbors black lab [​IMG] I used some for the topof my run, till the pigeons found a way out, then I just used some recycled chicken wire over the top.
