Three days ago all 5 of my girls will killed by what I think was a raccoon. It was horrible, but i don't want to give up. I loved every minute of the few weeks i had them. I would like to try again, but am horrified that I wont be able to completely predator proof the coop (we know how it got in, but there may be another way). I would like any advice you have on installing an electric fence. THere is no electricity at our barn, but i am sure there is a battery option. i have read some of the other electric fence forums on this site, but did not see anything about how to charge the battery, or where to put the wire (low vs. middle vs. high) around the coop. The coop was built as part of the barn, and then we put a chicken wire run outside to keep them contained. They only went in the run during the day, but were killed at night in their coop. Any help you can give would be wonderful!
