Thinking about getting some electric poultry netting to be able to safely free range my birds. I haven’t had an issue with aerial predators but coyotes are a huge problem here. I think I’ve got the fencing picked out. It’s the Premier1 48” x 164’ 2 prong poultry netting. Now I’m a little unsure about the supplies needed for my situation.
I do not have power to our coop. I will be using the netting to basically extend my run area. The nearest power is an outlet outside at the back of our house about 50ft to the coop. I’m not sure if solar power, battery power, or AC power is best. Other then the fence and charger, what else do need? A grounding rod? Fence tester? (No, I’m not gonna touch it ). May be a silly question to some, but what do you use to go from the charger to the actual electric fence? Electric fencing is very new to me if you haven’t guessed it by now. I may also be using this charger to power an electric fence around a small garden next year, right near the coop.
What do you think would be best in my situation?
