Chicken Wagon for Broilers - Poultry Fencing?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

We have 65 Freedom Rangers on order, with our chicken wagon built on a hay wagon almost complete. We will be using this wagon in one of our meadows. In the wagon I will have a closet with the electronics. I plan on having an RV power converter/distributions panel I will have indoor/outdoor RV style lighting coming off a 12v Deep cycle battery with a solar panel on the roof to keep it topped off. Im having trouble figuring out the best way to use the wagon with the battery to charge the fence. I already own a small 120v fence charger so I though about just running a 12/120 converter from the battery but I think that would use to much power? I do have a power source 120 power source about 250ft away through a bunch of trees to an outlet at our well but again, that may be to far or not? Maybe an outdoor rated extension cord?

 

Any thoughts on this?

Might want to re-title your thread to say something about electric fence and battery...I think you can edit title.

....or..... advanced search>titles only> electric fence battery

 

Anyway....I know electric fence can be run off deep cycle battery, friend does it, but don't know the details.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

 

Quoting centrarchid:

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