Hi All Chicken lover's in Kiwi land We have a urban run (coop not a "Tractor" yet) and have been advised by our Hastings District Council that we need to comply to the new rules n Reg's. An Application for Consent to Keep Poultry is required now. Probably because of the Fowl Virus issues? * "The housing of the hens must not be within 2M of any boundary fence or within 10M of any neighbouring dwellings. * Suitable fences or screening may be required to protect the visual amenities of the neighbourhood. * Suitably constructed methods etc... * Council retains the right to revoke if any problems etc... We have Brown Shavers only. My Question relates to using Galv Hex Wire Netting as a LOW fence (1.2M High - mesh cover 900mm - gap at bottom 100mm+/-) around the area with a movable fence construction design I'm thinking of making. Since the cost of wire netting increases with the reduceds size of the holes - what is the recommendations - if at all any concerns - on hole size? We dont have dogs only a cat the is not interested 15mm, 20mm, 25mm, 50mm hex? Currently I can get 50M 2nd hand of 15mm for $75 locally but new well over $100 50mm New $80 + Frt. Thoughts?
