It works on 60+ lb dogs, so I would assume so.
Looking at the animal chart on PATRIOT charger website, chickens are listed for the PE2. Same chart comes with the PE2 energizer.
Probably not, unless they are barefoot or are touching something else that is grounded. I have a dog that is deaf and furry, he just sticks his head under the wire and goes on out. I have other dogs that have shorter fur and they avoid the wire and stay inside.
Any spot where a plant touches the wire will cause it to ground. Remove the spots where it is grounded and it produce a much stronger charge.
I don't think that the PE2 is weather resistant. I solved that problem by running an outdoor extension cord to it and covering the charger with a cheap grocery store bag. I also have the charger under my upper deck so it does not get much direct rain.
In my case, I just used a 3' long piece of scrap metal and shoved it about 18" into the ground, and securely tied the ground wire to the metal. I think the ground will work better if the soil is moist.
Clearly someone messed up their math. What’s important is it will energize up to 2 miles. If you decide to what to enclose that around acres - then the 2 miles rule would still apply
I use a short fence to protect day lily flowers from deer. The plants brushing up against the wires have not minimized the performance of the fence.
how about chickens!
Hard to say if this would work since the squirrel needs to touch the hot wire, chicken wire, at the same time tie squirrel is touching the ground or ground wire. This is not a recommended system for the Patriot. Whatever systems you try u need to keep the ground and of wire separate and installed such that the squirrel touches the hot wire and ground at the same time without becoming entangled I the wires. Again the patriot is designed for fences and not for other uses
