For the drift of electricity a conductor is required. electricity flows between positive and poor.  Electrocution happens provided that current passes throughout the physique.  For a fowl to be electrocuted it could need to touch two wires at completely different voltages, or one wire and the grounded structure of the transmission tower, on the related time. If this occurs,  there can be a present glide and the hen could be prone to be electrocuted.
