t’s an 48 in. 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 in. 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.
Just attach a fence energizer and it’s ready to keep poultry in and their predators out. One roll (164 ft) weighs only 24 lbs.
WANT TO ORDER A COMPLETE KIT?
All you need is a poultry kit (#201940 or #201945) and an energizer kit (#201970, #201975 or #201976). PoultryNet Kits come with 5 extra PowerPosts to give added support at the corners and ends.
Keeps in poultry, sheep, goats, cattle and guard dogs. Keeps out deer, bear, raccoons, rabbits, foxes, coyotes, stray dogs and skunks.
Easy to move if needed. Secure for a wide range of animals. Visible for animals against all back grounds. End posts act as built in gates. DS posts are more stable in soft soils.
Price per foot $1.00 for 164′ roll with SS posts.
See PDF above for installation instructions.
Note: Not effective with baby chicks that are small enough to crawl through the net openings and therefore are not deterred by the electric shock.
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 extra supports posts. Use them at the corners and ends for sure. Extra posts may be needed elsewhere as well.
If the voltage drops below 3000v on the net, you need to turn off the energizer and unhook the net from the energizer. Test just the energizer by itself. If the voltage is 5000v or higher on the energizer the problem is in the net. The most common problem is that the lowest ‘hot’ strand has been caught around one of the metal spikes on the posts and is shorting it out. The net must be at least 2″ away from anything metal (metal posts, existing fences, spikes on support posts).
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.
With proper care, netting should last 5-7 years. Replacements will be prorated
