    We had our first hawk scare yesterday. A huge hawk attacked one of my female ducks and was back for more this morning.
    Currently, I have blueberry netting over the chicken and duck pens. I am wondering what wiring/netting is the best kind to keep hawks out.

    Any and all advice is greatly appreciated.

    that is scary, we use chicken wire and that seems to keep a lot out like coyotes and crows and make sure they have an easy excessible space for the chickens and ducks to go when their is a hawk.
