The lovely Leslie from Electric Fencing Direct has sent us this wonderful piece all about their fabulous Hot Gates. Read on to discover why they’re a must have product for poultry keepers.
The Hot Gate
Hello sunshine in East Lothian and its welcomed by the singing of the birds and clucking of hens. After what feels like a long wet windy winter how is the your ground around your poultry netting gate? Churned up like a Clydesdale has ploughed through?? I bet it is and for those of you thinking no my ground is fine is it because you already have the lovely convenient HOT GATE?
What can a Hot Gate do for you?
Well let me tell you a wee bit about the HOT GATE and why I think it is a good investment; and can be added at any time.
The hot gate can be attached to any of our poultry nets it simply ties onto the existing netting and provides easy access into your netting enclosure without having to turn off the power or get zapped.
If you have a bucket of water in one hand and feed in the other you have trudged across the paddock/garden and realised that you have left the electric on……do not fear you can open the hot gate with one hand and in you go. All because the hot gate has an insulated handle. It makes it quicker and easier to get on with your day to day job of collecting eggs and cleaning out.
Check out the video showing how easy it is to use.
