Hi all,
I know someone knows the answer to my question. I need to buy one of those nice, long-handled chicken catching nets/hoops. What are they really called, and where to get the best price? I work for a vet clinic but they couldn't find one, likely because I don't know what they're actually called! I know someone here will know the "official" name for this tool.
Thanks in advance to all you helpful chicken owners!

I have used both the fishnet and the chicken hook. The hook is much less disruptive, much less frightening and much quicker to catch a bird. The fish net will catch them, but is scares the bejabbers out of them, and unless you get it right, the whole flock thinks it has been attacked by an aerial predator.

Where as with the hook, you just reach out slow, snag a bird, and the bird is in your arms so fast, the first time I nearly dropped him, as I was not expecting it to work that well or quick.
