    Hi All,
    My husband and I just bought a portable mesh electric fence and solar fencer. We bought everything at blue seal but unfortunately the manager wasn't to helpful and there weren't complete directions with either the fencer or the fence. We figured it out with the help of the manager at our local tractor supply and it's up and working. Does anyone know what the voltage should read (we bought a tester)? My goal is to keep out neighborhood dogs but I don't want it to harm the chickens. [​IMG] Jen

    A girlfriend of mine put one up for her goats/horse and her turkeys are going to be in there also. She ended up calling the manufacturer for that info. They were very helpful if I remember correctly. She got their # on their webpage.
