What type of material for my new aviary?

Discussion in 'Peafowl' started by Chicken0Boy, Mar 12, 2011.

  1. I am making some plans to build my new 10x35x8 avairy. I have everything but material for the top, and keep in mind I am looking to spend $0-$100 on netting/wire for the top. So, my only question is what type of netting/wire should I buy for the top of the aviary?

    Thansk you guys! [​IMG]

    I just paid around $98 for a piece of netting from Pacific Netting for a 30x30 piece of their best and strongest netting. Brad legg turned me on to them and they are super helpful

    When you call them, they will help you decide which one to get. I got the heavy duty stuff due to the amouint of snow We get up here in Indiana. If I remember right the salesman told me that Brad went with one step down from the heaviest type cause he hets less snow in Kansas. But I would give them a call.

    you could use that too, I just prefer the knotted stuff.
     
  8. Out of both nettings which would be best on protecting from predators?
