    We're having heavy snowfall here and I just went out to check on the chickens. One part of the pen has a poultry net over it and the net has collapsed. Crap. Looks like I have some major work to do tomorrow and the girls may have to spend the day inside the coops. What fun!

    Wow, that stinks. [​IMG]
    I'm sorry you're having to deal with all of the snow and the extra added aggravation of a collapsed net.

    No injuries thank goodness. Did have to pluck a RIR out of the snow. Don't know what she was doing out that late in the snow.

    Sorry to hear that. Im glad everyone is ok. We have a hardware cloth over our run and a tarp over part of it. I have to go up on a ladder and clear the snow off the tarp so it doesnt collapse. Im hoping for a different roof for next winter!
