    I'm thinking of replacing the chicken wire over my run with netting. I may also use some netting to keep deer out of the gardens

    We get very little snow here

    Which type of netting so you suggest and why? Where is the best price?

    From a quick internet search it seems I can get 50' x 100' of 1 inch mesh nylon for about $150

    Netting sounds very good. Chicken wire comes in 4 foot rolls and looks less attractive than netting in larger piece. I was looking for netting before and was considering using swimming pool leaf covers. I did not need a 50 x 100 size. Will protect your chick from flying raptors. Keep looking around on line for the best deal you can find. I use Ebay and Amazon. But there are other options also to purchase from.
