    I was looking at that very link just a few days ago and wondering how easy it would be to move it around the yard. I think I like the fencing Justin Rhodes uses -- lightweight netting on flexible poles. Looks real easy to move and probably less expensive, too.

  5. Hi, welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    My chickens would laugh at that. Then poop on it on their way to poo on my driveway! [​IMG]

    And I recently discovered electrifying the tops of my fence won't work because the birds aren't grounded. Unless somebody knows otherwise?

    Need a ground wire running with the hot one, close enough together so they touch both at once.
     
  7. I was wondering just yesterday if that was a possibility. Do you think I have to worry about the wind blowing them and accidentally blowing something out, like the battery?
