Containing Poultry


CONTAINING POULTRY

Chickens cleaning up garden while fenced in with electric netting for security.
When the garden is done for the season, let your chickens in for cleanup duty. Keep them fenced in with electric netting for security.
What is poultry netting?
An electrifiable, prefabricated, portable fence. Arrives as a complete fence (except for an energizer and lightweight corner posts) with line posts built into each roll. We use it extensively on our farms for managing our poultry. 

Fencing an area with multiple curves and corners?
Consider using PoultryNet™ Plus and PermaNet® Plus nets. The added posts provide increased support and help in reducing potential sagging.

PREMIER SOLAR ENERGIZERS

Energizer charging a fence
PoultyNet™ Plus 12/42/3 and aPRS 50 solar energizer are a popular combination for folks starting off with chickens. Both are easy to set up and use. For feeding chickens, we tend to prefer Saturn 15 feeder. It holds enough feed for most small-medium flocks and its feed saving grill reduces waste.
Which unit is right for you?
The size, in pulse energy output (range from .5 joule to 2 joules), depends almost entirely on the weed contact that will occur and the length of the fence.

Contact Premier or call 800-282-6631 to speak with one of our fence consultants to help you determine the best energizer for your needs.

You can also view our energizer comparison charts online or in Premier's fencing catalog for help in choosing an energizer.
