PoultryNet® 12/42/3 Electric Netting
A prefabricated, portable electric fence that has 12 horizontal strands (11 conductive), is 42" tall installed and has string verticals every 3". Built-in line posts are spaced every 12'.
Keeps in chickens, ducks, geese and other poultry while keeping their ground-based predators out. Recommended for containing heavy, non-flying birds.
Arrives to your door as a preassembled fence. One roll (164 ft) weighs only 23 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.

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.

Great product. Works great keeping my chickens in and the racoons out.

This is our second purchase of poultry netting to protect our flocks of ducks, chickens, and turkeys. We are very pleased with our purchase. It is very easy to install and move around. We have had zero problems with predators since installing.
Excellent product! From the box to fully set up took me less than 20 minutes. It's obvious that Premiere put a lot of work and testing into this product. I am using the HotShock 5 with 1 net and am pleased with the performance of both together.
As stated, this fencing is easy to move, and light. I can do it myself in about 10 minutes. Perfect for pastured poultry operation or for small grazers. I love it.
I bought PoultryNet for my horned sheep. I'm afraid of them sticking their noses into the larger SheepNet holes and getting their heads caught, so I bought the smaller PoultryNet size hoping they wouldn't get too curious about the net. I wanted the PoultyNet Plus, but it was out of stock so I got the regular 12.5' version, figuring I could shove a fiberglass rod in between any trouble areas to tension it up. It worked really well, I only had to use a couple rods on areas that were on a bend and not a straight run. The sheep touched it a couple times their first trip out in it (good shock in full fleece) and now they totally respect the fence. I haven't had a sheep get out since I put it up a few weeks ago. I've since bought another regular PoultryNet and plan on adding more for rotating our other animals. Maybe even the chickens!
