After the chickens got out Friday Boomer decided we needed to electrify the fence. Not sure if it’s gonna keep the hens in but at least it is worth a try.
Solar box, hooked to the ground and the fence.
This is the clue that it is energized. It’s a few extra seconds to turn off, disconnect ground, disconnect these to break the circuit.
We have all touched it while wearing sneakers, and it’s not a TERRIBLE shock, worse than static electricity, but not by much. It pulses, so it’s just a quick snap. No one wants to “try it out” without the rubber soled shoes.
