    I've read that netting will have limited results for hawks, but wanted a bit more feedback if possible. We lost 4 birds to hawks in February and have had them in lock down since them. We've put up some cable wire and were going to put up netting over this, but I was just reading that this might not stop the hawks.

    We are interested in something that is a good price but will also keep hawks out. One post mentioned the green/orange plastic fencing? Any thoughts would be appreciated. Our little wyandotte bantams apparently make a nice meal. [​IMG]

    Happy Spring!

    I have been reading on the aviary netting. I plan on putting that on mine next week. There is a company that sells netting in different sizes on eBay and swears that is his some tough stuff.
