Electric fence

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.
