PoultryNet® and PoultryNet® Plus 12/42/3 Kits
Simplify your purchasing decision with a PoultryNet kit—includes both the net and extra support posts. You will need a fence energizer to electrify the net. (See Accessories below.)
Used to control the movement of chickens, ducks and other poultry on a daily or weekly basis. Arrives to your door as a complete roll with the line posts already built in.
42" tall PoultryNet is recommended for containing heavy, non-flying birds and is easier to handle than taller nets. For flightier breeds or protection from larger predators, look to 48" PoultryNet kits.
- 1-164 ft roll or 1-100 ft roll of 42" tall PoultryNet. Choose either single spike posts (SS) or double spike posts (DS), see below.
- 4-additional FiberTuff™ step-in posts for corner and end support.
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.
PoultryNet “Plus” is identical to standard 42" PoultryNet, but to help with sagging, we’ve added more posts to shorten the distance between them (6'8" vs. 12'). More posts means less sag and a more versatile fence which adapts easily to curves and hills.
Double spike posts are more stable in soft soils.
- Contain and control the movement of chickens, ducks and other poultry on a daily or weekly basis.
- Prevent raccoons, coyotes, foxes, dogs and other predators from killing poultry.
- 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.
- Can be used to contain and control livestock other than poultry, such as goats.
- 42" tall installed
- 12 horizontal strands (11 conductive)
- Horizontals are white and black (visible for humans and animals against all backgrounds) or green and black (for those who prefer to have the fence blend into the background or landscape).
- 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"
- Line posts (0.60" dia.) are available with a single spike (SS) or double spike (DS). PoultryNet Plus is available only with double spike line posts.
- Line posts are made from PVC and are spaced every 12'. PoultryNet Plus has 6'8" between posts, which means less sagging.
- Post spikes are 6" long and 0.26" dia.
- Netting kits available in 100' or 164' lengths
- 35 ohms of resistance per 1000'
Each netting kit comes with 1 Warning Sign and 1 Repair Kit.
See PDFs and videos above for additional installation instructions.
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.

This is the first product I have purchased from Premier1. I was helped by kind and knowledgeable people each time I called and received everything well packaged with perfect instructions. The quality of this fence is beyond my expectations. It is well made and easy to install, even on my rocky uneven land. Now I think I will replace my horse fencing with their products!

Very easy to install and move. Wish it came with just one more additional post.

We have been using this for about a week. ordering and shipping were right on. we have a rolling pasture to run our birds in and did order the extra posts, due to the hills we will need a few more to prevent sagging. so far the birds are staying in and predators are staying out. Read and watch instructions and setup and moving will be easy.

This is a wonderful product. It keeps my 10 runner ducks in their area and safe from predators. They are locked up at night and free to roam in this area during the day. The only problem I have is entering and exiting the enclosure. It is a real pain to pull up and reinsert the post so many times a day. It arrived quickly and ready to go. Very easy to install.

Informational video on website was very useful. Very easy to set up fence. Fence is working great keeping my 100 chickens safe and happy.
