    Seriously!! How cool would it be to adapt the electric invisible dog collar thing to chickens?

    I'd love the confine my girls to a certain part of the yard without having to put up 6' tall fencing. Also, would be great to be able to move it around.

    So, all you inventors.... I'm waiting!!!

    that would be cool. It would keep the chickens in, but the predators could also come in.

    What we need is two-way invisible fencing to keep the predators out and the chickens in. Cool idea! Somebody get started ! LOLOL

    My problem is I have wandering hens. I have a large area I'd like to have them mow down for me, but don't want to put up fencing. No predators during the day (usually) so invisible would work well for my use.

    Quote:Yeah, and you could invent a forcefield that would stop predators in their tracks, that would shock any coon, or dog or chicken hawk that comes within 10 feet.

    C'mon inventors git r done!

    Remember, don't use a big word when a diminutive one would suffice.

    Quote:Simple. Breed a chicken large enough to wear a collar.

    Oh wait, there already is. They're called turkeys.
