PoultryNet® 12/48/3 (w/ drivable posts)
This net has Drivable Netting Posts!
Can be hit hard with a mallet/dead blow hammer or tapped in with a steel hammer. Fence sets up easily in hard or frozen soils as well as soft soils. Pushing is no longer necessary.
It's a 48" electrifiable prefabricated fence. It arrives at your door as a complete roll with the posts already built into the mesh/fence.
White vertical plastic strings are "welded" to black and white electro-plastic horizontal strings. They are supported by .60" diameter white plastic PVC posts—which are spaced throughout the netting. Each post has a small, steel spike that is to be inserted into the ground for support.
Just attach a fence energizer and it's ready to keep poultry in and their predators out.

Easy to move if needed. Secure for a wide range of animals. Visible for animals against all back grounds. End posts act as built in gates.
Remember...netting must always be properly electrified!
This is a pain barrier, not a physical barrier. 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.
This net will need extra supports posts. Use them at the corners and ends for sure. Extra posts may be needed elsewhere as well.
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.
On PoultryNets, the bottom hot wire can slip off of the plastic portion of the end posts down 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. Hook energizer back to the net and test.

This is, by far, my favorite poultry netting I've purchased - from Premier and from another company. Our ground is hard during the dry summers, so I love being able to drive it with our dead blow hammers or rubber mallets and get them to stay in place. If it sags, I simply support it with support posts.

This fence did not meet my expectations. Although the poles are drivable, they are still very flexible and spaced too far between each other. So after I've driven them into the ground, they bend and the fence sags. The poles need to be stiffer. Or, if not, then there need to be twice as many poles in the net. Also, extra poles are not available for purchase so I can't even buy more to put in the sagging regions. I'm pretty disappointed buy the functionality of this fence. I should also note that this is the third fence from Premier1 that I've used, so I know their fencing products pretty well.
