Can you join poultry netting and a typical 3-wire electric fence?

    Hi, folks! Long time listener, first time caller. [​IMG] I have 300' of poultry netting that I want to set up off the back of a structure in a "U" shape and preferably I would like to have the poultry netting end 10 feet short of the structure and the finish the last 10' with a static 3-wire set-up. The end of the poultry netting would then act like the gate. I need the ten feet because there are some garden plantings that would prevent the netting from swinging out when opened. I assume this is possible by somehow connecting the clip on the poultry netting to some connecting device on the 3-wire fence but I haven't thought specifically about how to engineer this. Does anyone have any experience with this?

    Thnx, Cat
