Is electric wire safe around ducks? We have our field fenced with it but it's high enough that the birds can walk under it with no issue but I want to put it around the coop/run walls for predator protection. We used to have electric wire around our front gardens to keep the dogs out and we did have 1 incident of a duck getting tangled in it(the dog scared her into it) and she was pretty stunned for some time after i untangled her but she recovered after some rest and was fine. The way I wanna do it theres no risk of them getting tangled but what about shocked? Will their feathers keep them from getting zapped if they brush against it? this probably sounds liek such a dumb question but i am beyond frazzled right now. i think something just got one of the birds and after searching and not finding him all i can think about is how to make everything safer for everyone!!!!
