Keep your chickens safe with an electric fence

Electric poultry netting is an easy and affordable way to keep your poultry safe. It can be used for small or large areas, to contain all types of poultry, including chickens, ducks, geese and turkey. It will also keep out predators, including foxes, dogs, cats and badgers. It’s easy to move around your electric fencing, so the birds can be given fresh pasture, as required.

All you need to get started is:

  • An energiser (either mains, or battery powered)
  • A source of power (mains, or battery)
  • Poultry electric fencing mesh
  • Guy ropes
  • Posts
  • Corner posts are optional, although most people find them very useful
  • Pegs
  • Warning sign
  • Most people like to have an electric fencing gate to enable easy access to their birds, although this is not mandatory.

Poultry netting can be easily tied together. Our nets come in 50 meter and 25 meter rolls and you simply tie one net to the next, to make up the exact length you require.

To make it easy for people getting started with their first poultry electric fencing, we have put together a value kit with all the basics. We are happy to adapt the kit to suit your needs, or to help you deign your very own value kit. We help people get started with electric fencing every day, and all questions are welcome. Electric fencing is far easier than it seems!
