8. Yeah, I use that fencing with my chickens

But I had a charger and solar panel/battery set up already from my sheep. So, all I bought was the chicken fencing. I have a stationary coop and move around the fencing for different runs.

I had 20 chickens about 3 years ago. Went out one day to feed the chickens. There were only 8 with no evidence of the missing 12. The simple chicken wire fencing (not electrified at the time) was torn down and the chicken coop hatch door was torn off.

I'm not sure what got them. There are bears around here but the torn up fencing and small hatch door didn't look big enough for a bear to fit through. Maybe a pack of hungry coyotes. Anyway, I've gone to electrified fencing since then and haven't had that problem. It even keeps out snakes.
