Neighbors dogs - Page 2

post #11 of 14
I deal will dogs as well. Look into how you can setup a hotwire perimeter. Dog will not know to dig to get around a hotwire. Such might help you against the Mongoose if present in your area.

Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it.

Do I still need a chain link if I opt for the electrical fence?

No. Just keep the wires hot and properly spaced. You might also consider electrified poultry netting.

This conversation is a little long but it says much about keeping chickens safe from dog attack. 

On second though I'll let pictures do my typing.

 

 

Although this dog definitely disappeared, he definitely didn't go up in smoke.... he just thought that he was (going up in smoke that is so he didn't stick around)

 

No K9s were maimed or injured during the filming of this clip, only educated. at the school of high volts.

Keep your chickens safe from predators, buy and wear fur.
