    Hey all,
    I'm looking at various options for replacing the run part of my tractor with an electric fence (tractor has run part and coop part). One option is the Electronet product. It has two options of 42 inches tall and 48 inches tall. I was wondering does the height really matter that much? Other posts in the forum clearly point out that the Electronet is for keeping ground predators out and not chickens in.

    So, is the extra cost fo 48 inches really worth it? Or is 42 inches tall good enough?

    This is for 8 EEs right now. (Who knows what the spring will bring.)
