PoultryNet® 12/48/3 Electric Netting
A prefabricated, portable electric fence that has 12 horizontal strands (11 conductive), is 48" tall installed and has string verticals every 3". Built-in line posts are spaced every 10'.
Keeps in chickens, ducks, geese and other poultry while keeping their ground-based predators out. Recommended for active, flighty birds. The taller 48" net is more likely to discourage large predators such as coyotes and dogs.
Arrives to your door as a preassembled fence. One roll (164 ft) weighs only 24 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.
- Contain and control the movement of chickens, ducks and other poultry on a daily or weekly basis.
- 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.
- Keeps out deer, bear, raccoons, rabbits, foxes, coyotes, stray dogs and skunks.
- Can be used to contain and control livestock other than poultry, such as sheep, goats, cattle and guard dogs.

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.

Works well for keeping animals out of my chicken paddocks. We purchased one over a year now and it’s still going strong so we ordered this one as we are adding another flock. My only issue, but not really, is I wish Premier would include a fence tester as part of the package. I know you can purchase one separately, but would be nice to be included with a fence.

I installed this fence yesterday. It was easy to unroll and press into the ground, since the ground isn’t frozen. It was also simple to hook the electric energizer to the fence. I hope it holds up; only time will tell.

Haven’t used current fence section yet, I bought as an extra.
But the first one worked amazing for my Alaskan Malamutes that would escape the yard anytime they could. Now one zap and they stay away from fence. I do not even have to have a fence to keep them in the boundaries I want them to stay within. But I would suggest all new owners watch their animals during first use due to the likelihood to get tangled. That way you can shut off the power till they understand fence is unpleasant.
Electric netting has saved me a lot of time that I would otherwise have to be tracking them being the escape artists they are.

Love our 164' electric poultry netting. This is the 6th fence we have ordered within the last year and a half. Very satisfied!

Posts are very flexible and it is hard to keep the netting straight and tight. This is important to keep it up off the ground so it still shocks. I used other poly posts to take up the slack.
