What is the best place to buy electric poultry fence?
I wanted a fence with a little more strength to it. So we used regular poultry netting with wooden post. We put furring strips along the bottom one about 6" from the ground, then another about 24". I bought a fencer at TSC for $45. Then ran the wire(I think it was $30 and I have a ton left and the insulators were $12) up and down on the furring strips somewhat like the crude drawing below.... Works though...
People have recommended Premier to me. But I made the mistake of saving a couple of bux and getting one at Kencove. It's flimsy. Next time I'll buy Premier.
I just bought Premier again, 300 ft. The fence I put up a year ago still confines the girls in the first coop and it still standing after a year of N TX weather. Wind, wind and more wind. I swear we have wind 340 days of the year. Use vinegar to control weeds along the base of the fence. I really like the products from Premier, the cost is reasonable, not the cheapest but the quality is outstanding. Some things such as the Kuhl feeders, and the catch net and some of the "hardware" items cost less than anywhere else. I always look first at Premier before shopping elsewhere.

Premier 1 !! I've got several kinds of their electric fencing all over the place, including poultry. We've used their fencing for over 10 years.
Has anyone tried this. I was going to put some t-post in the ground, then the yellow insullators on it. Then take some chicken mesh/wire, say 4 foot high and attach it to the insullators. The wire will never touch the t-post. Then run a ground wire for the shock box to the ground as usual and the other wire attatch to the fence. I think it will work. I know I have shocked myself enough on wire when the shock wire touches it.
Monkeyingaroundfarm, did you try it? Results? What would you do where the fence touches the ground to avoid grounding out?
