How big of a hole can peafowl fit through?

    I am building a new run for my peafowl, so far i have the bottom wired. The bottom is 1"x3" wire. I have some cattle wire that I am going to use for the top part.Each hole in the cattle wire is 3" tall and 6" wide. Than as you go up the wire the holes get bigger, the very biggest hole is 6"x7" inches. Could peafowl fly through that? It is going to be at the very top so it will be 8ft tall. Thanks this is what the wire looks like

    I'm not an expert by any means, but I wonder about something. As you get holes in the wire through which you worry about peafowl getting out, you're already beyond the point at which predators can get in. Something to think about.

    You want to use 3/4" poultry wire so nothing can get in.
