    I went with poultry net for now because of budget constraints. At least it should keep the hawks and owls out. They are secured in the coop at night. What do you think?

    That looks like it would definitely keep the hawks and owls from flying in. Was the netting expensive?

    Quote:40' x 30' was $65 off ebay.

    Eventually I may put the chicken wire over it.
