Chicken farm in Toledo, Cebu, the Philippines. Actually, it’s a cock farm. These chickens sell for $500 to $1,000 US, each.

The farm is spread across 2-3 hectares, or about 10 acres. It’s surrounded by 40-50 poor families.

Each night the owner was losing 30-50 chickens, or over $25,000 US. The neighbors were poor and starving, and stealing them for food.

So the owner added guards – and more guards, and more guards. When we arrived onsite he had 25-30 guards on duty each night, and was paying over 50 full-time guards for 24/7 security.

He was still having chickens stolen every day and night, but the guards cut it down a lot.

The day we installed the Fence Hawk security fence, theft went to zero. It didn’t just drop by 90%, or 98%, it dropped to zero.

Of course, after a few days the owner was able to start laying off guards, until he was down to a handful who would respond if the fence was cut or vandalized.

In this case, the Fence Hawk electrified perimeter security system paid for itself after one night’s operation.

We used the existing barbed wire fence, and electrified it with our standard Mag 12 energizer, with a Fence Hawk monitor.

Each cock has its own shelter.

The newer side of the farm – cock shelters.

Dogs are dogs, everywhere we go.
