    Hey Everyone- I have a chain link run for my birds that is 99.5ft by 60ft. What i am trying to figure out, is how much netting do you need to compensate for the support poles, etc? For instance, would a 50 by 50 piece of netting cover a 50 by 50 foot run? I don't really know how stretchy this stuff is. I am getting the 2" heavy knotted out of some place in harrisburg. Right now it looks like my only option is the 100x150 piece which is pretty price, unless I want to start splicing smaller sections together, which I felt would be a lot of work. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
