Should have clips and guide wires included - Sherrie,

I purchased 5 extra fence poles thinking clips and guide wire would be included but it’s not! You should at least offer those for a few extra dollars more or have those available to buy separately…

Omlet Says: Hi Sherrie, Thank you for your comment. It has been passed on to our Merchandising team. As you can see in the product description, this pack only includes 5 poles. If you need some extra parts that you could not find on the website, feel free to contact us by email or by phone, so that we can have a look at this for you. Yours, The Omlet Customer Services team

Great Construction - Elizabeth,

I do wish that there were a little more explanation in the instructions. You do not fully extend the poles until after you weave them through the netting because otherwise they will be too long to properly weave through the netting. Since this was not explained verbally in the instructions I had to retract them and reextend them during construction which was a headache as they are not easy to lengthen and shorten. The system works well and I am pleased with the overall construction, would recommend to other chicken owners.

This is a great fence ! - Joleen,

I wanted to enclose my chickens because they dig up our garden and eat my flowers but we wanted something that looked nice and clean. This fence is perfect! Pretty easy to set up and I love the gate . We had to re-enforce the corners and a couple of the sides with t-post because of the wind we have where we live.

Works great - Charity,

It was easy to put together and put up. It keeps the chickens in. I like that it is portable.

chickens jump and FLY OVER - rabbits blast big holes through it ! - Sam,

chickens Jump and FLY OVER this fence. Meanwhile rabbits blast big holes through it !!! we have had a rabbit run through the fence, and now there are just big gaping holes laong the bottom. our chickens laugh at us, as they fly over the top of these, and duck through the holes in the bottom. it was nice at first, but quickly dismissed from our chickens. the

Omlet Says: Hi Sam, Thank you for taking the time to write a review to us. Our fencing should be higher than most other types, however, if your chickens still manage to fly over it, we would recommend wing clipping. This procedure is very easy and harmless for your chickens. You can find more info about this here. Our fencing has not been designed to be predator proof, which is why rabbits can indeed create holes in the fencing. Its purpose is to contain your chickens within one area of your garden. We stay at your disposal for any further information. Yours, Omlet Customer Service team

Rodents chewed through it within hours - Patrick,

I bought the Omlet MK2 105 sq ft. chicken fencing and a rabbit chewed through it within hours and now my chickens are escaping. This is cheap plastic fencing no different from something you can get for half the price at a big box store. I am really disappointed.

Good choice, but go bigger! - Jane,

I bought our fence back in May so our girls could have more room to roam but also leave my garden intact! This has done the trick. I put it together entirely by myself. It took a night and a day (but because I ran out of daylight the night before and didn’t start til after supper. 2 folks are a good idea to actually put it up in your yard. The fence is “wobbly” without the lines that make it taut- they attach to the poles and go into the ground with tent pegs. Those things make all the difference. My chickens respect the fence in that they don’t try to “jump” it even though they squawk unhappily when I close them in. They just want run of the whole yard and to eat my garden. Except my Rhode Island reds- they refused to be hemmed in and if they’re feeling especially froggy, they’ll jump the fence in a hot minute, leaving their irritated too-fat-to-fly orpington friends and the obedient barred rock girl behind. I got the 40some foot one, and should have gotten the 60’ one. I have 7 hens and will be introducing 4 pullets in several more weeks. While this is plenty large, if you have especially needy and dramatic queens of the yard, you’re gonna want more room or they’ll get cranky.

Love the fence, but chickens fly over - Jeremy,

The fence is great quality and easy to set up. Unfortunately my chickens can be very motivated to fly over. Well they fly on top of the fence and roost first, and then drop to the other side. Their wings are clipped. Save by a new fence, I'm not sure what to do.

Omlet Says: Hi Jeremy, Thank you very much for taking the time to write us a review about your fencing. We are sorry to read about your situation. Our current fencing is already taller than most other types, at 1m25. If necessary, you can always adjust the poles of the fence to ensure that the netting remains tight and secure at all times. Usually, wing clipping is the most effective method indeed to prevent chickens to fly away from the fencing. Some breeds might be able to fly higher and better, however this would normally be the case of wilder breeds, unlike our domesticated chickens that are bred to lay eggs. If you wish, don't hesitate to contact us by email or by phone if you have any further request. Best Regards, Clemence Omlet Customer Service team

Material not strong enough -rabbits eat through it - Sarah,

I purchased the chicken fencing. Within 24 hours of installing it, it was eaten through by rabbits in 6 different places with big enough holes that the chickens walk right through. The material is so flimsy it is useless to keep animals from eating through it! Highly disappointed in the quality of the mesh.

Great fence solution! - Colleen,

This fence is a great option for my yard in for the chickens. Very nicely made and user-friendly. I did eventually purchase the eglu chicken coop and it was a bit of a redundancy for the space that I was working with so I no longer use it but still appreciate its design.
