PoultryNet® Plus 12/48/3 Starter Kit
New! Everything you need in one convenient package to temporarily fence poultry in the backyard or on the pasture. 48" tall.
Choose this starter kit if you plan to move the fence daily/weekly and have light or flighty breeds such as Leghorns and Buttercups. Kit includes these essentials:
Netting is quick and simple to move. Even for new users, it takes less than 10 minutes to go from out-of-the-box netting to installed fence.
- 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, bears, 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.
Starter kit includes:
- 100 ft roll of 48" PoultryNet® Plus double spike electric netting creates a 25' x 25' enclosure.
- 4 48" FiberTuff™ support posts
- Solar IntelliShock® 60 fence energizer with U-Spike ground stake (combination ground rod and support stand) and wiring harness.
- 5-Light Wireless Fence Tester
PoultryNet® Plus 12/48/3 is a 48" tall electrifiable prefabricated fence. It arrives at your door as a complete roll with the double spike posts already built into the mesh/fence. Features 12 horizontals strands (11 electrified) with vertical struts placed every 3". “Plus” nets include additional line posts spaced every 6'8" to reduce sag. Add 3 more rolls of item #207018 to create a 100' x 100' enclosure.
FiberTuff™ Posts provide additional support around curves, corners and other major directional changes. Use at end posts to help maintain tension on the fence.
The Solar IntelliShock® 60 fence energizer will electrify 3-5 rolls of electric netting depending on soil conditions and vegetation.
Use the 5-Light Wireless Fence Tester to determine if your fence system is working properly. At the end of the net, the approximate voltage should measure at least 3,000V.
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.
2-year warranty for energizers and solar panels cover lightning damage and defective parts or workmanship. Should an energizer fail, we will replace the unit, bill you for the cost to do so, then reimburse you for warranted expenses after we have examined the failed unit. Misuse and flood damage are not covered.
30-day warranty for all batteries.

I wish I had bought this years ago. After having 12+ chickens eaten by raccoons, skunks and hawks, I bought electric netting. Haven't lost a chicken yet (and yes I realize hawks can fly over - but they seem to have moved on since we installed the netting). It was easy to install (I'm almost 60) and we had it working within 20 minutes of rolling it out.
I used a 100 ft length of string to lay out the shape and that really helped. Can't wait for the doors to be in stock.

My only regret about the Poultry Net Plus Kit is, I should have purchased it sooner. I have had numerous issues with the neighbors cats/dogs and also various predators stalking and harassing my chickens. The chickens have several tunnels connected to their coops that meander through my garden area. The cats would sit on the tunnels and stalk the chickens, dogs and other predators would chase and run them up and down the tunnels.
I am happy to say there have been no issues with predators since using the poultry net plus kit. I am also coming back to purchase an additional 100ft of netting to add to my current netting to enclose my entire garden area to keep the cats from digging in it. Wonderful product!

Best investment to date for my backyard chicken flock. I was having issues with my girls wandering off my property and escaping their enclosure. The kit is very easy to set up and move, plenty of room for all 8 of them with the 100 foot roll included. Enjoying the peace of mind!

Kit came in yesterday evening, and we were excited to set it up. It was super simple, and we had it up and working within about half an hour. The only downside is that b/c the products are made by different companies, the instructions are separate. It would be nice if Premier1 would create instructions from A to Z on how to set it up. That said, once we figured it out, it was up and running and works great!

My husband and I are both over 65 and were able to put up the fence fairly easily. It works beautifully; however I have ONE adventuresome chicken that manages to fly over and out about once a week. The others stay put. The fence, though, works exactly as advertised.
