    bought 5 rolls of 2 by 4 100 feet rolls heaving fencing. This is just for daytime use... it will all be connected to their seperate runs and houses... using t posts every 8 ft and will buy 8 to 12 feet wood fence posts.... fence is 4 ft tall. can I use some kind od deterrent across and around the top perimeter... been watching lots of Youtubes for suggestons I hope I can keep out hawks etc and keep out dogs ec during day.... with like 6 to 8 entrances for us and lawncutting
    will solar work like with electrical charge? can put it at top and bottom...???
    anyone have suggestions and pics ???
