    I was wondering where is a good place online or anywhere really to buy poultry netting for a god decent price? I was going to get some more poultry wire for the top but it is way to heavy for the big of a pen I have. And I really want to let my chickies out without having to deal with dead chicks/chickens everywhere due to the hawks.... Anyhoo and info would be wonderful =]

    I used www.farmtek.com. They were cheeper than other poultry dealers. I think I looked and called four-five companies looking for the best deal.
    I bought item number TC2646A
    Heavy-Duty Polyethylene Netting
    50' x 150' x 2"
    I have a tone extra and will use that in the future. I didn't want to tie together to create a seam. Too much hassel. It cost about $440 + 65.00 in tax. So a little over $500.00. They have smaller sizes as well.
    Good luck.

    I got my netting at Cutlers Pheasant and Poultry Supply online.
    I got 2" netting. But I also put birdnetting on that, so smaller things couldn't get in. I ended up putting utility wire over all that too, because a coon got into the side of the netting. If you're in a high snow/ice area, you might have to go out in the winter and knock some of it down. That's why I stuck to larger-holed netting/fencing.
    The birdnetting is cheap at places like Menards.

    Lowes has some stuff there. The welded wire we want 4ft x100 ft is 60 bucks. They have it in the garden section and tons of other stuff as well.
