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 27 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.

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.

I bought these with extra posts and it was easy to set up and works great. Without the extra posts the sag was hard to manage on our uneven ground. With step-in posts it can be frustrating finding a spot that will work; with these posts I had no problem and was done in a few minutes.

I just installed this yesterday and I'm very happy. Easy to install. The drivable posts are much better than the double-spike posts I'd been using. I like someone else's idea of using unattached posts to fill in where there is some sag due to ground irregularity.

As noted by another reviewer, the poles are a bit too flexible. I knew beforehand that the poles are 12.5' apart, so I also ordered the FiberTuff poles to fill in between to great effect. I consider the rest of the fence top notch thus far.

Definitely the best netting we have used. The posts are stout and the fence is so easy to set-up, with it's drivable posts, in our hard and very rocky soil. Haven't had any problems with it. We have set it up in pastures and through the woods. Previously used regular two spike step-in netting from a different manufacturer and was very disappointed. Love this netting for chickens, goats and pigs! Definitely getting more rolls for this year.

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.
