    I mounted my electric fence controler (for garden) on the back of my chicken coop (plywood), every second it makes an audible clicking noise that can be heard pretty good in the coop. Will that constant noise have any negative effects on the chickens inside, or will they just get used to it and live with it?
    Thanks,
    Titus

    Oh goodness, they are probably used to it *already*, just like they're used to all the other repetetive noises in their environment - birds chirping, cars driving by, branches flapping in the wind, etc.

    NO problem, I absolutely promise [​IMG]


    Pat, whose charger is a little further away from the coop, but still, you know [​IMG]
