If you already have a permanent poultry enclosure in place but feel you need more protection against Mr Fox then this kit is the answer for you and your hens!
Electric Fence Protection for an Existing Poultry Pen Kit incorporates everything you need to fox proof a 50m enclosure (wire mesh stapled to wooden posts) with 3 lines.
These lines are screwed into the wooden posts and the polywire is run through them creating an extra barrier against predators. One of the live lines will be secured through stand off insulators which will hold the polywire further away from the post - normally it's best to run this line at ground level where it will act as an extra deterrent. The next two live lines run through ordinary screw in ring insulators.
If the wire mesh is not buried into the ground you may want to consider attaching the wire mesh of your enclosure to the earth stake. Alternatively if the wire mesh has a plastic coating it may be necessary to also run an earth wire at the top of the fence to ensure a scrambling fox gets a zap!
