Here are some pic's of the fence. I got the 40 inch high plastic fencing from Home Depot @ about $10 for a 40 inch X 25 ft roll, the 1 inch x 10 PVC is not sun resistant, the elbows are just PVC, BUT the 4 way and 5 way pieces are special order furniture grade PVC from Home Depot. These are the bottom pieces which enable making the feet so it just stands on any ground surface. I also used solid 4 inch cement blocks to easily give it weight and stand up to the Oklahoma winds. We get some storms roll through with 50-60 mph wind gusts. You can also get 10 inch spikes and drill holes and drive them into the ground, just harder to pull up when you want to relocate.
This is my gate, showing the electric stand offs which hold the wire and the spring loaded handles all from Tractor supply. You can see the blocks which weight things down also.
A 25 foot section self standing, a 4 way on the ends and I think 12 inch feet (slept since then), there are uprights and feet every 5 feet which works great, no sag. My barred Lizzie, and Henny penny the RIR checking it all out.
Close up of 4 way on the ends, no glue just #8X3/4 ss pan head screws, lots of screws got two 50 ct boxes from Lowes
Close up of 5 way with feet. The fence is held on with black zip ties which will last in the sun. The only maintence is putting in the feet when I move it around I forgot to screw them in. LOL The ones that go horizontal to the main fence. I found removable zip ties at Lowes to attach the corners of the two fence sections together at three points top, middle, and bottom.
They come in two lengths 8 inch and 18 inch. I LOVE them! lol
The fence material
I ordered via internet and had them shipped.
Well, food for thought for the spring, eh? ha ha Hope it all works out for you. The solar charger I got on sale from Tractor supply and keeps the coons and coyotes, and wild dogs out of the run at night. I forgot to close the coop one night and lost two of my girls to coons. I raised them from chicks and they were very friendly to me. I really felt bad about that so the electric fence, more to do harder to forget. lol
Good luck on your fence project. BTW my girls flew over especially when they get excited for treats. I had to clip their flight feathers on one side and they learned to not do that. Now they are larger and too heavy to get altitude. LOL
