Chicken Net 11/42/3
A prefabricated fence that has 11 horizontal twines (10 conductive); is 42" tall installed, and has string verticals every 3". Keeps in poultry and keeps out their ground based predators.
White PVC posts are built into the mesh every 13.6 ft. The result, when energized properly, is a nearly impenetrable mesh to sheep, goats, coyotes and dogs.
How does it compare to PoultryNet?
- Has 10 times more electrical resistance (380 Ω/1000 ft) so it's less suited for fences more than 1000 ft long.
- Not as easy to handle during removal and installation (longer length between posts means more material to fold/roll).
- Yellow color not as visible in light/dark situations as white/black.
- To contain and control the movement of chickens, ducks and other poultry.
- To prevent raccoons, coyotes, foxes, bears, dogs and other nonflying predators from killing poultry.
- To rotate poultry to fresh grass and to reduce disease risks.

This is a pain barrier, not a physical barrier. If animals are scared or starved it will not keep them in.
It is best to have animals trained to electric fencing before you turn them out in the net only. 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.
It has 380 ohms of resistance instead of 38 so it’s not advised for fences longer than 2 to 3 nets.
Note: We’re aware that the lower price of this net will encourage folks to choose this version. Think carefully before you do so. Customers who are unhappy with netting are often those who’ve chosen its farmstore/catalog equivalents. So why do we offer it? Because it is similar to nets from other sources—and comparisons make decisions easier.
If unsure, give us a call at 800-282-6631 and ask to speak to consultant. They will help you make the optimal netting choice for your fencing needs.
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.

Easy to put up, works great!

This was my second of these chicken nets. Keeping my flocks separate. I have New Hampshire Reds in one fence and Buff Orps in another. I only electrify at night. Chickens stay in fence. I have three danish leghorns and they would fly over the fence. Not sure if 48" would help with that.

I struggled in the beginning from the packaging, I'm not sure how it was "folded", but seems that being rolled, would have made an easier method to unpackage. I think that adding 2 more poles would help keep the netting more taut and stop some of the sagging in the fencing. (I have been using wood stakes to help bring up the areas that are sagging.) All that being said, the fencing appears to be very durable,and so far, it has done the job keeping in my chickens and ducks. I appreciate the addition of the repair kit as well.

We've purchased multiple lengths of this exact fencing and we love the economy of it. The main complaints I see from people, is that it is flimsy but thats with any poultry netting with this distancing since there are so many strands. This fence will stand straight up if done in a single line, and will become slacker the more facets or angles you put into it, but for us, its worth putting in a few strategic posts to help hold it instead of the entire fence being double posted, for weight purposes!
Edward L from Virginia
I bought this understanding that distance was limited to probably two nets, however, my complaint has to do more with the inability to actually hold itself up. Very flimsey and unless you have additional step in posts it seems as though the manufacturer just took it too far on spacing the posts. I think description should make it clear that step-in posts should be a required item for this to function properly.
