This 50m length of Green Electric Poultry Netting by Hotline Electric Fencing is the best way we have found to protect your poultry from the predatory desires of the fox, badger, mink etc. We must stress, electric netting is for keeping the fox out not for keeping the chickens in necessarily. The bottom strand (black) is not electrified to prevent shorting out where it touches the ground, but the fox would not be able to dig underneath the netting without getting a shock from the electrified wires.

This standard 12-strand net, stands 110cm high (approx 3' 8"), and the mesh has 7.6cm wide x 6.3cm high squares at the base going up to 7.6cm x 11.4cm at the top. A 50m roll of netting, when used to make a complete fence, will cover an area of approx. 156 sq m (40' x 40').

A 50m length is 155ft in 'old money'. PLEASE do double check the length of netting you require as once the roll of netting is opened we cannot accept it back for exchange i.e. it cannot be refunded unless it is returned unopened and in a saleable condition.

The 50m electric netting roll is supplied with 15 x 110cm black flexi-posts each with a 15cm long metal spike which you push into the ground. It comes with guy twines and pegs, anchoring pegs for the bottom strand and a net repair kit. This 50m electric netting has an in-built gateway at one end of the net (this is a section of the netting with an extra post to create a 1m access point, not a separate gateway). For complete Kits to include everything you need for an effective fence take a look at our Poultry Anti-Fox Electric Fence Kits.

You will need a 12v battery energiser with at least 0.5 stored joules energy for a 50m net, don't be tempted with lower capacity cheaper energisers they will just not put enough 'oomph' through the fence (11 strands x 50m is 550m of wire), and the slightest vegetation growth will seriously reduce the effectiveness of the fence. Netting is notoriously difficult to keep free of vegetation growth. For Mains energisers we would suggest at least 0.6 joules.

Green Poultry Netting

When installing the net, carefully unroll the net roughly in position. Then push the posts into the ground around your henhouse until the two end posts meet.

It should be kept as taut as possible and free of vegetation, then use the guy ropes on the posts to tension the top strand and the anchoring pegs on the bottom non-live strand to close any gaps over uneven ground.

You may find it difficult to stop the fence 'sagging' on sloping ground so extra black flexi-posts may be needed here, or CP112 more rigid Corner Posts.

A fox won't take a 'running jump' at the fence, they will come and investigate it first and walk around it to find weak points. Once they touch it with their nose it will 'bite' them. The bottom strand (black) is not electrified but the next strand up at approx 6cm is live and this also prevents the fox from digging under the netting.

For more information please see our Electric Poultry Netting Advice page

Note: the netting does not need to 'meet' to make a circuit; it could be in a 'U' shape or one long line and would still work. The 'electric circuit is completed when the fox touches the wire whilst his feet are on the ground.
