    Im wanting to know where I can buy flight netting or even golf netting to put over my runs to keep the hawks out. Any advice would be much appreciated.

    Are you referring to netting like you use to protect berries from birds? If so I would think you could find that netting in a garden center. I was wondering about using that on our run to keep out hawks, I am new to this.

    Amazon has poultry netting (a few types). I plan to buy some from them when we are ready.

    That's where I got mine at. I large 25' by 50' roll for about fifty bucks.

    Try kencove.com or farmtek.com - they have a very good selection, prices are reasonable.

    I always used fish net.

    Free from any place that fishermen are, you get the old stuff and just sew up the holes.

    With that said though:

    1. I STILL haven't found a way tokeep the snow from sticking to it and making the entire net tear down.

    2. I once (but only once) had a hawk dive bomb STRAIGHT THROUGH it! (and yep, it killed a chicken)

    3. Because of #1 and 2, I now have my runs covered with concrete reinforcing wire.
