PoultryNet® and PoultryNet® Plus 12/42/3 Kits
We've simplified the process and taken the "guess" work out by offering kits to complete your poultry fence system. You will need a PoultryNet kit and an Energizer kit (see accessories below).
PoultryNet is a 42" 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 1/2" 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.
- 1-164 ft roll or 1-100 ft roll of 42" PoultryNet. Choose either single spike (SS) or double spike (DS) netting, see below.
- 4 - Additional posts for corner and end support.
- 12 horizontals (11 electrified)
- Horizontals are white and black
- Horizontal spacings from bottom to top are: 2", 2", 2", 2", 4", 4", 4", 4", 4", 6", 8"
- Verticals are white plastic strings placed every 3"
- Posts are 0.6" PVC with a metal spike that goes into the ground.
- Posts are available with a single spike (SS) or double spike (DS) that goes into the ground.
- Post spikes are 6" long and 0.26" diameter.
- 12 ft between posts, built-in. PoultryNet Plus has 6.8 ft between posts, which means less sagging between posts.
- 42" tall is easier to handle than 48" tall net.
- Comes in 100' or 164' lengths.
- 35 Ohms of resistance per 1000'
- Each net comes with 1 repair kit and 1 warning sign.
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 the extra supports posts included in this kit. 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.
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.

We were introduced to this fencing while watching "Coop Dreams". It seemed easy enough to put up, and seemed to be exactly what we were looking for. Our chickens are kept in a very secure run, but we wanted to extend their play yard, to give them more exercise and variety. We ordered it, and the install was so easy! We have great flexibility with the area we want to incorporate on any given day. The girls are LOVING IT! It so fun to watch them out in their play yard, chasing bugs and scratching in new territories. We highly recommend this to everyone!

Wonderful temporary fencing for my chickens. The have however taken flight to just barely make it over the fence. I got the 40". For chickens I would suggest the 48"

It is definitely worth it to get the poultry net plus. The extra support poles and shorter distance makes the fence substantially more stable, functional, and a whole lot less frustrating to set up. Premiere has the the best poultry netting you can by, and great customer support!

Love the netting. Works well, cut feathers on one wing to keep chickens in, but I am very pleased with it. The ground is very hard here so I had to use my drill to make holes for the stakes. I couldn't drive them in the ground. I also drove t-post at an angle to tie my corners up. that made it very workable. I bought one and liked it so well I ordered another.
Thanks Premire 1 for a great product.

Well, the idea was good but it didn't work in the end. I had hoped to create a safe area for my chickens to free range without the neighbor dogs getting them. Putting the fence up wasn't that difficult which was nice. When we plugged it in to the fence charger it didn't work well because the fence insisted on sagging toward the ground in order to be close enough nothing could get through it. And then, as soon as we stood back, the chickens flew right over the fence. It wasn't tall enough to actually keep them in. And probably wouldn't have been enough to keep out a really determined dog. And so, I am again looking for a solution to allow my chickens to have a little more room without being eaten by dogs.
