    I am going to be placing an order for PoultryNet fencing and am looking for advice on the best height of either 42" or 48"? I plan on rotating the fencing every couple of weeks and thought the 42" would be a bit easier to handle, but I wanted to get some feedback from some folks who have used this type of fencing to get there opinions. Thanks for any suggestions.

    I have the 48". Height is not going to make any difference whatsoever in how easy to set up or move; it will probably make a *little* difference in how much it sags (esp with wind) but since you will want to stake the corners back *anyhow* I'm not sure that'll matter. If you are tall you might be able to step over the 42" but not the 48"; me, though, I have to undo the tie and walk between the end posts to get in (with charger off) and would still have to even if my fence were 6" lower [​IMG]

    Good luck, have fun,

    I chose the 42" and I like it because I can step over it (barely) when I have to.
