Good customer service! - Beth,

The directions for putting together could be a little better ordered! When we got so far along then we had to go back to put the brackets on the ground and attach! Would have been easier a step or two back!

Perfect extension and coop spot - Jessica,

I loved the walk in run and coop I got a year ago but ran into the problem of the coop being in the run and used as a sitting spot for my birds. So finally got this and now no more sitting on the coop and more space for birds to run.

Great Add-on - Joe,

This door is very easy and quick to install. I use it to allow another entry/exit for my chickens. The door is small and designed only for your animal’s use. It is not big enough to pass larger waterers or feeders through. However if placed above ground height you would be able to add feed or water and/or move them slightly. I do suggest getting two, one for the upper and one for the lower area of your coop to allow more access. I am very happy with the door as I am with all my Omlet products.

Easy to add on and very stable! - Marcus,

We originally bought the Eglu with 6-foot run and decided our ladies needed more room. The 3-foot extension was the perfect addition! My daughter and I added it in less than an hour while the birds were sleeping. We like having the tractor and the extension is stable and allows us to move the run daily!

Keeps predators from flipping up the outside skirt - Amy, New York,

These have worked great and are thick plastic so they do not break easily. May take a bit more time to screw into the ground, but I don't need to get my mallet to hammer tent stakes any more. And there's a drill attachment to make screwing these in faster which I haven't used, but I bet it works great too. Keeps predators from digging under the zippi skirts by keeping the skirt pieces tight to the ground.

Beautiful and Convenient, But Not Perfect - Leah,

I want to give a completely honest review on the coop with 6' run, wheels, and handles. I'll start by saying I am quite happy with this, and would recommend it for someone with 3 or fewer birds. It is definitely not perfect though, and it will be up to each individual to decide if the pros outweigh the cons for them. My coop arrived with a couple plastic parts damaged (it was only shipped in a cardboard box with a couple pieces of cardboard to separate certain pieces), and the corner pieces of the run were missing. I noticed these issues at separate times, and customer service was excellent about getting back to me and making sure I received every part I needed. Things I love: -The coop is cute, and roomier than I thought. I am using it without the roosting bars, and my 3 Welsh Harlequin ducks fit in fraction of the space at night. I would even be comfortable with a 4th duck in there. -Once assembled, it is a practical design. The handles and wheels are a must-have. I move the coop and run 1-2x/day and the wheels and handles make it a quick 2-minute task. -The fact that the run is attached and moves as one piece with the coop is just great! -I appreciate that it came with feed/water troughs made to attach to the run. It makes moving it even more convenient. - The plastic is more durable than wood - especially with messy ducks - and is easy to spray off with a hose. - Did I mention it is cute?? Nobody can accuse me of having an ugly coop. - Even though it's a little tricky and time consuming to put together, it's a lifesaver if you aren't handy and are unable to build your own coop/run from scratch. Things I don't love: - Depending on where you live, I recommend taking some extra measures against predators. The back door opens up very easily with a turn of the knob, so I keep it more secure with a string tied from the job to a carabiner which I keep clipped to the run until I need to open the back door. I also added hardware cloth along the sides because certain predators where I live could absolutely try to pull a bird through the bars of the run. - Things just don't quite fit together right. The back door fits unevenly, and the parts of the run do not all fit properly. The run is assembled with plastic clips which easily come off with enough pressure. I had to resort to zip ties for a couple spots where it didnt fit well enough to use the clips even though I was following the clip placement exactly, and have found that if the ground is at all uneven or slanted, several of the clips are at risk of popping off where the pieces of the run try to separate, and I have had to reattach some and add extras around them for reinforcement. This is mainly a problem with the run skirt pieces. The manual for the coop itself shows what I think must be an old run design where each skirt/respective run panel is one solid piece, which would be a much more practical design, as it would be sturdier and have far fewer clips at risk of falling off. - You can pull it easily, but it seems to get stuck if you try to push it. The run skirts extend quite a ways under the edges of the coop where they are not secured to anything, and it seems like if you try to push the run/coop backward sometimes they get caught on the ground there if it is not perfectly even. I have somewhat fixed this issue by lifting the coop as little as possible while moving it. - While I feel like the coop is a fine size as long as you don't plan to leave your birds locked inside it all winter (there is also nowhere to put food or water in it) the run is comparatively small. If you aren't going to let your birds out in a larger area then I would recommend getting the run extensions. I got this with the intention to move it frequently and do not believe it is the type of run that should be left in one place. Overall I do really like this coop and run. It is the only pre-made design of its kind that I could find, and customer service is very responsive when needed. There are some issues such as the run skirts being separate pieces from the side panels (which I feel is a bit of a manufacturing shortcut), and there are some areas that are going to have to be checked frequently to make sure the clips aren't coming off. It seems rather expensive for what you get, but it was still worth it for me to get something already made and not have to figure out how to design it myself. If you are a handier person, you could make something similar with wood and hardware cloth for a fraction of the cost, but it probably wouldn't be as cute, and the sturdy bars of the run are definitely better than hardware cloth alone. I hope this review helps someone decide if it is right for them. I am glad I went with it. It is pretty much just what I was looking for, and I think there are pros and cons of every option out there. The cons of this are worth overlooking to me, but they still exist. I would recommend this to a friend, especially as a first set-up, but would also make sure the know exactly what they're getting into.

Omlet Says: Hi Leah, Thank you for this detailed feedback. We are always looking to improve our products so this will be very helpful for our Product Design team. In regards to the assembly of the run, it is indeed crucial to build everything on a flat ground, as this will ensure that all the panels fit together correctly. The back door also should be even. Usually, if it's not the case, readjusting the supports struts inside the coop should fix the issue. Don't hesitate to contact us by phone or by email for any further assistance. Yours, Omlet Customer Services team

Extra door ? Yes please! - Andrew,

We bought and fitted the first extra door about 5 weeks ago but have yet to fit the second one purchased . An ideal method of accessing the hens to feed, water or just physically move them, without compromising the inherent security afforded by the Omlet base. Not difficult to fit and well designed and easy to operate
