I spent some time yesterday afternoon putting up the electric net fences around the chickens. We lost a chicken to a coyote last week, so they’ve been locked in their coop/run.

I have a love/hate relationship with these fences. I love that they keep the birds safe, I hate putting them up and moving them. After a frustrating hour, they were up, at least I can leave them as is for a month or so. I am glad the chickens can now be out running around and doing what they love to do.

Do you have a love/hate relationship with any product?
