One of my young chicks (9-10 weeks old) flew over to the neighbor's back yard the other day and met an end with their 2 dogs. Not anybody's fault, but now the dogs like chicken Weeeeelll, now their dogs are showing a lot of interest in digging under the shared fence and their owner thinks a few bricks will stop them..... I would like to know if running electric wire on MY side of the fence would be a deterrent to their digging in? I'm kinda afraid that by the time they are that far in -- it might be too late. Experiences anybody??? The neighbors try really hard to do right with the dogs But I don't think they actually have much experience with keeping outside dogs (they have a doggy door and the dogs come outside quite a bit). To complicate matters, they have a newborn baby so the dogs are being supervised less than they used to be and the responsibility of the dogs is falling mainly to the husband who is gone all day. I WILL shoot their dogs if I catch them inside my yard killing birds --- but I'd really rather prevent it if possible. I kinda don't think telling them that straight up would go over very well though.
