    Well, I have 3 different coops with separate runs for each other. 2 of them being big coops for adult chickens and one is small for chicks/young birds. I placed a bid for a 2" mesh nylon 25' x 50' and that is a nice size for all 3 coops.

    My concern is I have younger chickens always escaping the cages by flying out and I have a fear if I cover it with netting they might get hung up in it (literary). Will it be safe for them? I seen some hawks in area and I know it's for there own good.

    I have used cheapo bird netting over my various chicken run area and no major issues. Lol, I got more tangled working with the stuff than they ever did.Give it a try.You can always remove it.
