This combination allows you to use the enclosure as a non-electrified day pen for small birds, or electrifed for effective predator protection day and night.
- Height: 48" (4 ft) tall.
- B16" height of non-conductive chick-tight mesh (3/4" spacings) along bottom of fence prevents small birds from escaping.
- 100 ft roll length.
- 11 electrifiable strands.
- Vertical strings every 3".
- Lowest electrified strand 4" above soil.
- 15mm double spike posts every 6.8 ft.
- Kit includes 4 FiberTuff support posts.
Why electrify?Electrified netting successfully contains chickens and other poultry while keeping their predators out. Without a proper deterrence, birds and predators will not learn to respect the fence and, unfortunately, will test it. Though we strongly suggest that you electrify with a fence energizer, there are some cases where it does not have to be electrified.
When to not electrifySome folks prefer to watch their birds during the day and take them in at night. They can use a non-energized fence. If your flock is not under constant supervision, then we strongly advise that you electrify the fence. Non-electrified netting will not stop predators.

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.
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.
