This kit is fantastic value and comes with everything you need for your electric poultry fence. Electric fences are safe for animals and children. The idea of the fence is to keep birds safe while allowing them to roam, and to keep the fox away. Nets can be easily moved and are very easy to put up once you get the hang of it! You can easily add nets or cut nets down, should you need to. And, you don't need to keep the electric on. Obviously, the electricity adds to the protection of your poultry, but if you want to turn it off while the kids are playing outside that's easy to do.
The Hot Gate is a really useful feature. If you keep poultry, you'll know how much you are in and out throughout the day - this gate makes it that much easier!
The energiser that is included in the kit can from from your mains electricity (just add lead out wire), or from a 12 volt leisure battery (not included).
The kit includes:
- 1 x 25 metre electric net in green
- 1 x Hotline Gemini 80 energiser
- 1 x Hot Gate, for easy access into enclosure
- 1 x fence tester
- 4 x double spike corner posts for extra strength
- Ground skewers, pegs and corner guys & warning sign
This kit is made here, in the UK. The energiser comes with a 3 year warranty and is capable of powering up to 3 nets, should you wish to add more netting down the line. The Hot Gate makes for easy entry into the enclosure and the corner posts allow you to add strength to your netting at key points. The net can be configured in any formation (even in a straight line). A fence tester is also included in the test, allowing you to check the voltage on your fence.
The Gemini 80 energiser runs from either the Mains or from a 12 volt leisure battery. If you are running the energiser from the mains, you may wish to add High Voltage Lead Out Wire to carry the electricity from the energiser to the fence. This comes in reels of 25m, 50m and 100m. If you are running the energiser from a 12 volt leisure battery, you may wish to add a solar panel which will charge the battery for you, saving you the time and effort of recharging your battery from the Mains.
