    I need help with aviary netting size

    Has anyone use 2" heavy knotted aviary netting over there runs or aviary’s where they get cold weather and snow . My question is how does the 2” netting hold up during the winter with snow, does the 2” netting let the snow pass thru it or does it build up on top like it would with the smaller type 1” wire / netting or chicken wire.


    Thanks Alan

    I used to live in Scituate, Ma and most snow by the ocean was wet and 2" netting was fine as long as it was not a nor-easter where the snow clumps very rapidly.

    Thanks

    The reason why I was thing going with netting instade of wire on top was due to if the ducks where to fly up hitting the wire they might hurt them self where as netting would give a little , and the reason why I wanted to go with a 2" hole netting figuring the snow would build up a lot less then that if I was to go with a 1" hole netting.


    I need to know what size before I orderd it over the internet, this is the last step I need to do then my duck aviary will be completed,


    Thanks
