Hi all, I am new here, but have had periods of lurking whenever an issue came up with my little flocks Anyway, we have 5 hens in our tiny urban backyard. The fences here are all 3 feet chain link. When I had chickens in another city, we had a 6ft privacy fence so we had no stray chicken issues at all. Anyway, the hopping the fence has pretty much been minimal until recently. Now its just terrible, and out neighbors are upset. We are keeping the hens in the coop for now, which I hate because then we have to mow and the chickens are sad. We keep their wings clipped, but obviously 3 feet is not high enough. We can't afford new fences right now, so I am curious if anyone has any experience with electric fences. It seems like 90% of the time the chickens jump up onto the fence before they jump over and if we strung an electrified wire over the top of the fence they wouldn't jump. does this sound like it would work? Also, would I be able to use a low enough voltage so that my 2yo wouldn't be too shocked it he touched it? My only electric fence experience was with horses, and that was quite a current! Thank you so much!
