PoultryNet® 12/42/3 (Pos/Neg with drivable posts)
42" tall electric net with positive/negative (Pos/Neg) capability for high resistance fencing conditions. It’s used to keep in chickens, ducks, geese and other poultry while keeping their ground-based predators out. Recommended for containing heavy, non-flying birds.
The drivable posts (.75" dia.) are much stronger and stiffer than standard line posts and can be pounded in with a dead-blow hammer or mallet. Fence installs easily in hard/frozen soils as well as soft soils. Pushing in posts is no longer necessary.
Each roll is a complete fence with the drivable posts already built into the mesh/fence. One roll (100 ft) weighs only 18 lbs. You will need a fence energizer to electrify the net.
Which PoultryNet® is right for you?We offer many fences to fit your situation, including complete kits, different heights and lengths, multiple colors, drivable posts and positive/negative options for dry soils. Visit this link to compare all PoultryNet options.
No extra gates needed. Just turn off the energizer and pull the first post to create an opening. For added convenience, a PoultryNet® Gate can be used to provide easy access without the need to turn the energizer off.
Same mesh as standard 42" PoultryNet, but with stronger and stiffer drivable posts. Excellent for those with hard/frozen soils or that lack the hand-strength to insert the posts into soft soils. Brown drive-caps indicate these posts are drivable.
Pos/Neg capable for dry conditions or use with high resistance animals. Ideal for situations when there is too little moisture in the soil to properly ground the fence. A PowerLink must be purchased separately to make the secondary ground connection.
- Contain and control the movement of chickens, ducks and other poultry on a daily or weekly basis.
- Prevent raccoons, coyotes, foxes, dogs and other predators from killing poultry.
- Rotate poultry to fresh grass as a food source and to reduce disease risks.
- Keep small flocks in the backyard. When managed well, chickens are an indispensable garden tool—turning pesky insects and weeds into rich compost.
- Can be used to contain and control livestock other than poultry, such as goats.

* Pos/Neg (PN) fences are recommended where the soil is very dry and/or the animals do not ground well. Two clips are used at each end. One is hooked to the energizer, the second should be connected to a ground rod.
See PDFs and videos above for additional installation instructions.
Electric fence is a pain barrier, not a physical barrier. A common mistake is not electrifying it. Animals may escape or become entangled (and may die). On a % basis, entanglement is very rare, but it can and does occur. If animals are scared or starved it will not keep them in. The first time you put the animals in the net, you should be available to watch them for a while. That way if one were to get into the fence and get caught, you can turn the power off and get them loose.
Netting must be moved when tall grass covers the lower “hot” strands. The alternative? Apply a strip of herbicide to kill vegetation.
Warning! Due to risk of fire, do NOT use continuous output energizers with electric netting or electro-plastic conductors such as rope, twine or tape. Use only with a low or wide impedance intermittent pulse energizer. (Fi-Shock™ brand energizers which are sold as low impedance, continuous current output should NOT be used with electric netting.) All energizers sold on Premier’s website use an intermittent pulse and are suitable for use with electric netting.
Dry conditions and wintertime usage may reduce the effectiveness of electric fencing. Ice and heavy snow can flatten netting and thereby damage it.
Dry or frozen ground may cause post spikes to bend or break if inserted with force. Pilot holes may be needed. We recommend using drivable or single spike posts in hard soils. Double spike posts provide more stability when the ground is soft.
With PoultryNet, the bottom hot wire can slip off of the plastic portion of the end posts onto the metal spikes. This will cause a dead short and no energy will be on the fence. Unhook the energizer and slide the hot wire back onto the post. Reconnect the energizer to the net and test.
Listed below are recommended optional components. Your particular situation may require alternative recommendations. Please call and talk to our fence consultants if there are any questions at 800-282-6631.

This is a really good product. I have (8) 50 footers connected in an area for the chickens. I will probably getting 1 more and then I'm done. It gives the chickens a good size area to roam freely and provides a shield of protection.

My objective was to keep squirrels from taking pears from the tree. I have lost 4 pears in approximately two weeks. This is however a victory from the past when the tree is completely stripped. I have been trying to catch the entry method on a wildlife camera.

Do not buy this fencing. They spaced the fence posts so far apart (10-11 ft or more) that the fencing SAGS terribly and no matter how tight you stretch the posts the bottom 2 rows of fencing sag down to the dirt. It is VERY disappointing! It appears they want you to spend more money and purchase additional posts. Also, no additional corner posts are furnished, and as anyone who ever put up fencing before knows, unless your distances measure exactly to hit the corners at spots where they have built in posts, (not likely) you really need corner posts. I personally spoke with a representative when I made the order. They should have been more knowledgeable and helpful and should have pointed all this out. This Pos/Neg 42" fencing has such design flaws and such poor quality that you should not expect from the Premier brand name. GO to another supplier!

Great fencing products! Works very well for holding our pigmy goats.

The fencing with drivable posts is perfect for the hard clay soil in north Georgia.
