Raising chickens is fun and can offer plenty of opportunities to produce eggs to make the best-tasting desserts and breakfast omelets. Securing poultry on farms and pastures is recommended to bird owners to prevent the flock from escaping or being attacked by predatory animals such as coyotes.

Electric netting can be used to secure all types of farm animals including pigs and sheep on farms and pastures.

This type of fence can be coated in PVC for added protection against chew marks and can last 20+ years outside.
