Ok, so I think I am going to order 164' of electric poultry netting. I want a large area that is movable (even if it's not 'easy' that's ok but I can't think of another way to be able to move a large area). I want my layers in it. Obviously I realize some might try to fly out, and I'll either clip their wings or just let them stay in the yard. I was going for the idea of having as 'free range' of chickens as possible but keeping them up, they are killing my flower beds. And not to mention how many eggs I can't find! I have a large flock. So, some ideas I needed was for a portable laying box area/coop. I had a few ideas. One was the canopy type deals, I have my food under one now that is lowered. It's the kind that the legs can move up and down and snap into place, in the down position it does a good job of keeping the feeders dry. I could modify another one into what I want, and it would be sorta portable. But the biggest flaw I see is what's already happened to the other - wind. The other one's usable, but even anchored down the wind still tore it up some. Another idea was using some chain link panels and actually setting up a 'coop'. I could tarp the sides and the top, and have a coop there that's easy enough to move around every so often. And the last question (for now) does anyone use a solar powered system for their nets? I am familiar with how much power the fencing needs, but I have never used a battery or solar powered box before. It will be to far for me to use my existing box. I'll need either a battery powered or solar powered box. Does anyone have any suggestions? I'd love to see anyone pictures of their set ups, or if anyone even has anything like what I am trying to do, I'd be interested in seeing how it's managed and hearing ideas. Thanks!
