for sure the new fence is going on the side that the "snipers" live. Its a compound of about 10 houses and 60 people close to the road. Apart from chickens, mangoes and veges disappear routinely from the front, salt free garden. I am going to use an electric fence around the garden but Mrs Oz wont let me use it on boundary fences as she fears the locals will think its 220V and retaliate. We don't want enemies. Once the new coops are up, the next project will be an eight foot high net fence about 300 feet long I can use to control the free range areas for the new coops. Its made of commercial fishing net. fairly cheap. Then the birds can get amongst the bugs.
