    Group,

    Any of you use the portable electric net fencing from Premier Fencing Supplies? I am looking to purchase 164' section of this fencing and also looking at a 12v battery energizer with solar recharger, do any of you have experience with these?

    Now for why... We live in a rural area known for Coyotes and other four legged predators. If I can see them my .22 will take them out, however if I can't see them I want them to be shocked when they get too close to my chicks!!

    Let me know,

    Wagar Family Farm

    A search of this forum will find many favorable reports in other threads [​IMG] I have some of it myself, but have not actually used it yet (this summer for sure). I =LOVE= Premier's other electric fence products though, they are very very good quality.

    Be aware you'll have to move it slightly on a regular basis to mow underneath, and may have to tie back the corners to additional step-in posts or whatever to strengthen them against wind.

    Good luck,

    Pat

    We bought some earlier this spring, from KenCove near Pittsburgh PA. Haven't installed yet, but the stuff sells so fast they have a hard time keeping it in stock, so it must work for somebody. We should have ours up by the first of June.
