    I'm looking to get some netting to cover my run, what type do you use and where did you get it?

    I buy the 2 inch heavy knotted netting (think snow load when you hang it so hang it on fence posts NOT on your fence itself or it will pull it over).

    Hmm...trying to remember where I bought it. It has been awhile. I am guessing Mypetchicken.com. Umm sorry don't remember for sure.

    When you get sticky wet snow it can bring netting down. I had some metal 2 inch chicken wire fencing I had strung overhead and it brought it down. I also tried regular bird netting for fruit trees and that ripped soo easily when it snowed.

    I have been happy with my heavy knotted netting. This is rated for I think 90 lb of weight.

    yep I looked it up and here it is.

    Randall berkey I think sells it and you can try jefferspet.com and cutlersupply:

    I have never ordered from randall or cutler before. I have ordered from jefferspet and MPC.
