PoultryNet® 12/48/3 (with drivable posts)
48" tall, portable electric fence used to contain chickens and other poultry. Same electrifiable mesh as PoultryNet® 12/48/3, but with stronger and stiffer drivable posts.
The drivable posts (.75" dia.) are much stronger and stiffer than standard line posts and can be pounded in with a dead-blow hammer or mallet. Fence installs easily in hard/frozen soils as well as soft soils. Pushing in posts is no longer necessary.
One roll (100 ft) weighs only 22.5 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.
Same mesh as standard 48" PoultryNet, but with stronger and stiffer drivable posts. Excellent for those with hard/frozen soils or that lack the hand-strength to insert the posts into soft soils. Brown drive-caps indicate these posts are drivable.
- Contain and control the movement of chickens, ducks and other poultry on a daily or weekly basis.
- Rotate poultry to fresh grass as a food source and to reduce disease risks.
- Keep small flocks in the backyard. When managed well, chickens are an indispensable garden tool—turning pesky insects and weeds into rich compost.
- Keeps out deer, bear, raccoons, rabbits, foxes, coyotes, stray dogs and skunks.
- Can be used to contain and control livestock other than poultry, such as sheep, goats, cattle and guard dogs.

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 fencing. I love the drivable post option. One complaint/room for improvement: no matter how I brace or tighten the corners, the fence sags and curls under at the bottom and grounds out. We weed-eat the grass down very low along the whole path and several sections will be arcing since it curves under and sits on the grass.
I wish they made the vertical sections of the mesh stiff to help keep it straight when pulled tight. The way it attaches to the post makes it pull tight a bit unevenly. But that wouldn’t be a problem if the vertical part of the mesh was stiff. Anyway—just some advice for product updates. I do think it is higher quality than other netting brands I have used before.

Very nice fencing. Sturdy posts and easy to manage. I would recommend this fencing for someone who has chickens.
Suzie W from Washington
High quality. Durable. Arrived promptly. Is much heavier than I anticipated but I did get the drivable posts because we have lots of clay. My only complaint is that the posts need to be closer.

I wish this was cheaper, but it works great. I have used the 164 foot double spikes for two years, but I wanted something easier to move. This is it, way lighter than the 164 foot fences. They hold up well. I have a stubborn goat that will test the fence and he has climbed through/over it a few times. It still works. I use a 3lb dead blow for the hard clay areas, but on soft soil you can just push it in. Same set up as the two year old fence so I expect the same quality.

These work great to keep my flock contained! So happy I went with electric fencing even though my chicken run is more permanent and I do not move the fencing often. It is easy to move though when needed. I do recommend getting several of the extra support poles to keep the net from sagging. This also protects my coop from neighborhood dogs, skunks, and other threats.
