A 25m or 50m roll of Standard Green Electric Poultry Netting from Hotline Electric Fencing.
Electric Netting is simply the best way we have found for protecting your poultry from the desires of the fox and badger. We must stress, this netting is for keeping the fox and other predators out, not just for keeping the chickens in - although it can do that too.
The Standard Electric Poultry Netting is a 12-strand net, 110cm high (approx 3ft 8in), flexible polywire net. 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 25m long roll of netting, when used to make a complete enclosure, will cover an area of approx. 39 sq m (20ft x 20ft). A 25m length is approx. 82ft in 'old money'. The 25m roll comes with 9 black flexi-posts with metal spikes (15cm long) which you push into the ground.
A 50m roll of netting, when used to make a complete fence, will cover an area of approx. 156 sq m (41ft x 41ft). A 50m length is 164ft in 'old money'. The 50m electric netting roll comes with 15 x 110cm black flexi-posts each with a 15cm long metal spike.
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.
Each electric netting roll comes with anchoring pegs for the bottom strand, a warning sign and a net repair kit. For complete Kits, to include everything you need for an effective fence, take a look at our Electric Fencing Kits for Poultry Section.
We suggest using a 9v or 12v battery energiser with poultry netting to make sure enough power goes through the strands and can overcome some shorting out. A Battery energiser should have at least 0.3 or more stored joules and for a mains energiser, we would also suggest at least 0.2 joules.
Tips for Installing Netting:
When installing the net, carefully unroll the netting, roughly in position (see our video). Then push the posts into the ground around your hen house until the two end posts meet.
It should be kept as taut as possible and free of vegetation, then use plastic tent pegs (with guy ropes made of any non-conductive cord) on the posts to tension the top strand. Use 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 normally 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.
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.
- The 25 metre length of netting is approx. 82 ft, creates a Pen of approx 21ft x 21ft - 440 sq ft - or 39 sq metres.
- The 50 metre length of netting, is approx. 164 ft, giving approx 41ft x 41ft - 1680 sq ft - or 156 sq metres.
