I have had problems with Coyotes and coons and I am to the point I am going to run a serious electric fence around about 1.5 acres for my chickens to run in without worrying about coyote or coons getting in. I would like your opinions on my plan. Here is my plan. I am going to fence in 1.5 acres and run hot wires every 6 inches from the ground up too 5 feet high. The charger I am going to use is built for 20 miles and without a load it produces 9400 volts. Under load it should produce around 6000 volts. Also it is a pulsing charger not constant. I have shot 2 coyotes and a coon in the last week going after some of my hens and I have lost 3 hens and 2 Guineas in the last 2 weeks. This should help but I know it is not the 100% protection that we all look for. But I do feel it is better than a regular fence that could be climbed by coons.
