After reading so many horror stories about hawk's taking off with all my byc friend's chickens it scared me into rigging up a cover for my run. Now my chickens never used the run as they flew out of it and we couldn't afford to cover it with wire at the time it was put up. After seeing Speckled Hen's run it gave me the idea to criss-cross yarn..yes, I said yarn..with cd's threaded on it all over the top of my run. It took me two days and three sets of clothes due to cold rain but it is done...now I am not saying it is pretty but let's hope it works till I can get some fishing line or something else to replace it with... Now my poultry does go into lock down at night. This morning I found one broken strand of yarn in the run but nothing in the run. So I will get something else to lace over the top of all this yarn. I forgot, my guineas found a gap yesterday and flew out but I fixed the gap today but had to leave the run open until everyone goes to roost tonight to get my guineas back in the coop.
