    WOW! That looks huge. I really like the runs. How do you do your watering system in the desert? That's too many pens to haul water 1 gallon at a time!

    Good Nate! Better than yesterday. I'm so sorry to hear about your chickie. [​IMG]
    I had to put down one of my sweet old ewes yesterday. Losing a pet/livestock sucks. In your case it didn't have to be so...and that's much worse.
    I grew up with pigs, I had pigs (people still think I have pigs now and that was years ago...hilarious!![​IMG]), my uncle still has pigs and I worked in a pig barn for many years. I TOTALLY get the fence thing. I get my bagged straw (allergies...yes it's funny) from people who have pigs. First time there, I saw a HUGE boar in a one strand electric fence. Couldn't believe it! They train their pigs for the electric fence in an area that has a metal sheeting just beyond the electric wire. They touch the electric wire, try to go through the electric wire and touch the electric sheeting. Pigs never try the electric fence again. Pretty genius I thought, but the pig thing...that ship has sailed for me.
    But for you, food for thought...if it saves your chickies. [​IMG]
