Extra support posts are useful at corners, curves and ends. Use either step-in posts or FiberRods.
To purchase Chicken Net
- Measure the fence line.
- Choose the length and the amount of netting needed. (Example: A 240 ft fence line requires one 164 ft net and one 82 ft net.)
- Choose support posts—as needed for ends, curves and corners.
- Select an energizer, ground rod and fence tester.
Pos/Neg fences—are for dry, sandy or rocky conditions. Ideal for situations when there is too little moisture in the soil to properly ground the fence.
Use only with a low or wide impedance intermittent pulse energizer. Warning! Do NOT use continuous output energizers with electric netting due to risk of fire. (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.
Dry or frozen ground many cause the NetPost spikes to bend or break if inserted with force. Pilot holes may be needed.
