Hi, fellows. Here´s Parvat, from Patagonia. I have some hens in a cozy coop, but I want them to pasture in the field, and keep them near the house. Do you think I could use an electric fence? Should be any risk for them? Thanks a lot.

Put the electric hot wire outside where the predators are with the chickens inside then there is very little risk. If a chicken were to get hung in the fence while in contact with the hot wire it could be fatal, but other than that the risk is very low.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://richsoil.com/cards
