    Thanks! They do! They much rather be in there then free ranging... Feel much safer with the electric fence up after we lost 7 in one night to a raccoon... Plus we are over populated with BEARS! Would highly recommened this!

    Looks great! Could you tell me a little more about the electric fencing you have there? Looks like it's solar. Does it hook to a battery? I also noticed another solar panel. Does that link up with those lights on top? How many strands of charged wire are you using to keep the raccoons out (can't they just crawl under?)

    Thanks and awesome job. Very inspriring to a guy who will be doing the same thing this weekend.

    We have night gaurds around the whole perimeter on the posts... Other then that When the spot light goes off up jumps the BF and out the door he goes with a gun and spot light just in case.. Bad experience has caused us to become so cautious...
