We just installed an electric fence from Premier, which we purchased thanks to the suggestions on this forum. I bought it because there are foxes where we live, and I seem them sometimes during the day. Now I can let my ladies out within the fence during the day while I am at work though I still secure them in their coop at night. For those of you that have fences, how do they work in bad weather??? It is raining like crazy today, and in the winter we get snow (I am in NJ). Thanks in advance!
