I'm considering electrifying some part of our fencing once we get it up (soon! chicks are growing fast!). My predator concerns are: coyote, bobcat, dogs. I am not sure yet if we have racoons in our area. I smelled skunk (I think; it was a vague smell, not strong) on only one summer evening last year (we've been out here 3 years now). But I am assuming smelling it once means we've got them? Which would offer the better protection, electrifying the 5ft livestock fence around the yard, or the hen pen of 6ft chain-link panels? I just read on another thread that coyotes can leap over fences. Can bobcat leap over, too? Would electrifying help deter even a leaper, ie, would they maybe get their muzzle zapped while investigating and go away?
