So I read all the great reviews about electric netting for hens and I was sold on the idea. Yesterday I set up my new fence and honestly, I am really disappointed! Despite extra support poles and restaking several times a day, it still sags and I can hear the fence shorting out on our very short grass.
My next problem is that my dogs have been zapped by the fence, which, yes I realize this teaches them to leave the hens alone, but now they won't come out of the house to pee! We are on 5 acres and the coop and fence are quite a ways away from the house and now my girls are traumatized :(. I am thinking of returning the fence and charger but I'm completely embarrassed about it because I practically begged DH for it and now I'm really unhappy with it! I found some plans for a PVC mobile yard and that looks a lot better to me.
This fence and the sagging, what a joke! I called the company and ended up ordering more poles to weave into the fence.
Im just all kinds of upset and worried about it. But now with the dogs afraid to come out... It may be a no go and I just might return it! Only thing that keeps me from doing it right now is how dh is going to react. Ugh!
