I am having a terrible time with red foxes coming on our property killing our poultry. They don't mess with our goats. The goats are in a pen, but I'm sure the foxes can get in if they really wanted to. The chickens and turkeys are put away at night and we like to free range them during the day however, the foxes are catching on to this and are now coming earlier in the day. Our animals are with us as pets, not for food. Recently one of our chocolate turkeys was attacked by a fox and luckily I caught it in the act as my dog was barking at 5:20am. Was able to scare off the fox and we saved the turkey which cost me $260 to have her seen and stitched up. We are now looking at running electric wire around a perimeter of our yard, but I am ignorant on what is best recommended for electric fence protection against red foxes. Been searching the net a few places, but it's more confusing me. Figured I'd give a shot here with my fellow BYC members on recommendations and tips for this. We have an electric outlet about 50-60 yards from where the start of the fence would be. I thought about running a solar powered Fi-Shock system, but don't know if it would be powerful enough of a shock on these pesky varmints. I've not yet measured out the ground, but figured a mile of wire would be good. I'm looking at running multiple strands about 4-6 inches apart and come up about 5' high. I may need to go longer than a mile...but won't know until I get some calculations going soon. Help on this is greatly appreciated.
