    Hey guys,

    I'm about to move onto a rural area for the first time, and I KNOW for fact that raccoons, skunks, and opossums are present. I've been seriously considering getting electric netting for the flock, used particularly during the nighttime, but I have zero experience with the subject of fencing/predator control. Any advice? Also, I would love for it to be solar powered... Thank you!!!

    You can do it. I recently purchased a setup from Kencove that is able to keep four 164' lengths of fence hot. The 0.5 Joules per length of fence will require the larger fencer. Premier also sells what you are looking for. Confer with a the sales reps on the particulars.
