Protection from hawks and owls
Now, the picture doesn't look like much, but if you look closely you will notice a bunch of small wires cross-crossing. Well those little wires are actually fishing line and they are crossing over our chicken yard.
Here in Peyton we have HUGE hawks flying all over our property and they are a very big threat to our chickens. Therefore, by criss-crossing the inexpensive fishing line over the yard, the hawks and owls are deterred from the chickens.
Simple and cheap two dollar protection from predators!
