Heh, looks like my set-up! I didn't remember posting a pic of my chickens here!

Hi CJ, nope, this is my layer flock in the eastern Adirondacks.

I'm in Southwestern Vermont.

I have a bunch of mongrel roosters that look like the one on the bottom left. I've switched to dark Cornish because I couldn't contain my Chanteclers who used to fly over the netting even with a clipped wing. I hope the hens grow bigger because they can squeeze through the electronetting making me reluctant to turn it on.

We have (now) mostly Rhode Island Reds, and a few of the heritage breeds mentioned above.  We haven't had any trouble with them flying over the net.
