Put this up in Spring of 2015. I remember because it was right after this, which was memorable.
But whatever the camo material is made of, it’s good for no more than 3 years. It’s falling to pieces and can’t be put back together, because every time you put tension on two bits trying to tie them together you only rip some more apart. Yesterday we had a windstorm that did serious damage, because it has no tensile strength left.
It will probably be better than nothing for another year or so, but that would be stretching the heat and glare resistance of chickens. For the record, in case you ever wondered, at least in the high desert it’s three years and out.
