    I am trying to decide between the regular poultry net (for my ducks and geese at night) and the new "Permanet" which is similar but the posts are sturdier. See here- http://www.premier1supplies.com/fencing.php?mode=detail&fence_id=93 for details.

    What do you think? I won't be moving it very often, maybe once every 1-2 months. And when I do move it, it won't be far because I am going to use a "plug-in" energizer. Too much grass for battery or solar.

    Never mind. We decided to get the Permanet. 100' and the Hotshock 300.

    Let us know how it works.
    I just got a catalog from them, and am curious to how well they work.

    Just a heads-up... unless you're using it on bare earth (both sides of fence) or wanna spray Roundup regularly, you will HAVE to move it more than every 1-2 months, because you MUST keep the grass mowed under the fence and have to move the fence to do that. Don't necessarily need to move it *far* (3 feet to the left is fine) but you do need to move it enough to mow. Really truly.

    Quote:Thanks Pat. Roundup and I have become good friends over the past several years. I tried to do it more "naturally" for a while and then I thought, hmmmm, I live in the grass seed capitol of the world so who am I kidding... I will spray as needed and will move it seasonally. I would like to run them in the garden in the winter to fertilize for me.

    Can any electric fence box be used with this netting?
