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.
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.

A friend introduced us to Premier 1 Electro-net after we were seen struggling with a cheap orange electro-net. WOW!!! Once you go black (and white), you never go back, baby! This stuff is THE BEST!!! Hands down!
We always purchase the double spike (easier to install and push into the ground with your foot, more stable once there, stands up better/longer with less sag potential), 48" (nice height that has discouraged ALL our jumpers!) PoultryNet because it will not only keep the birds anywhere we want/ don't want them, but it will also keep the goats, lgd, and predators were we want/don't want them as well! And honestly, the green version does look REALLY NICE around OUR yard! It blends in well. Not near as visible at night as the black and white tho, so I recommend that color for livestock. 164' rolls are nice length but hefty! so plan on a buddy system to carry and install, unless you're a hulky thing. Worth EVERY PENNY of investment when compared to what you get with the cheaper stuff!
We have recommended to a handful of friends and saved them a lot of $$$ and hassle on purchasing cheaper nets! Premier 1 really is the place to shop when you can't afford to sacrifice on quality! We already had 7 nets (work soooo well for intense pasture rotations) and just received our order of 3 more. Can't hardly get enough of em! Will order again, I am sure!
PS: Our first nets, inherited from our friends, are now over 5 years old and still in GREAT SHAPE--working in our forest glens! You want unproblematic, long lasting, tangle free, quality nets? You found em!!!

This fence does an awesome job of keeping unwanted animals out and wanted animals contained. With a good charger and ground rod, you should have no trouble protecting your animals.

Great product. This is our third 164 foot length of poultry net purchased; but, the first to come without the repair kit. Not a big deal since the other two did.

Good fence, installed easily. Pretty much owned up to the marketing hype. I will say that the poles are too far apart. They sell extra poles for a few bucks each. You probably will need one extra pole per 11 feet of fence. That's how far apart they put the poles, 11 feet. If your ground is perfectly flat and you are running straight lines you might, and I mean might get away with one pole per 11 feet. I got 6 extra poles with this order, had to use all of them due to slightly un-level spots in the field.
No big deal, solar power unit works great. Over quality is really good.
When I got the email asking me to write a review I thought to myself, "Seriously? Do people need help deciding to buy these?". Look, you obviously got to this website because you're looking for some sort of electric fence. As far as I know, Premier1 is the best, cheapest, and probably only fence maker worth buying. So stop reading reviews of whats obviously the industry leading product and just go pick out the fence of theirs that fits your needs best.
