Top end - quality and price - just one gripe. - Bob,

Very much the most expensive coop and run available but I wanted something that would require as little maintenance as possible and I think this is it. Excellent design. Top class materials and manufactured quality as far as one can tell at this stage. Fairly easy to assemble and the instruction manuals backed up by the videos are excellent. Your people on the helpline were brilliant in helping me through my indecision about what to buy and what I could fit into a very limited space My only gripe is the description of the run as 2m x 3m. Probably I haven't studied the specification in sufficient detail but I think I might reasonably have expected that by selecting 2m x 3m I would have a run which made 6 square metres available to the chickens to run round in. In fact, the internal dimensions of the run are only 2.7 m x 1.81 m which computes to 4.9 square metres - less than 84% of what I was expecting. It's true that with the predator proofing it measures 3 x 2 m of space and it's probably my own fault for not reading the spec carefully enough but I still feel a bit cheated out of a whole square metre of run. I will recommend it to anyone who wants the best and is prepared to pay for it but I will point out that the dimensions are not what they might seem.

Omlet Says: Hi Bob, Thank you for your feedback. Your comment about the lack of clarity on the dimensions of the product on the website has been transferred to the team in charge of its presentation so that they can investigate how to improve this aspect. To clarify, we tend to speak more broadly about panels when we say for example that a run is 2m x3m, so in other words, 2 panels by 3 panels. However, the exact dimension of one panel is 90cm x 90cm. This means that for example, a 2x3 run will measure exactly 1.80m by 2.70m. We stay at your disposal for any further information, Yours, Omlet Customer Services team

Thrilled with the walk in run!! - Marcy,

I bought a 6' x 15' walk in run in August 2022. I am a senior lady and I assembled it without any help. Improvising a way to securely attach it to my wooden coop took some thinking and browsing on the internet but I finally found the perfect clamps. My four hens have a spacious and secure space and I am very pleased with the quality and appearance of the run. Covered with plastic to protect the girls from our Connecticut snow and wind....this run has allowed them to be outside every day. I love to go out and sit in the run and spend time with them. I also purchased the auto door and the interior light...both are indispensable ....solidly made and add to my enjoyment of the chickens. I plan to expand this run and recommend it highly.

Standard Chicken run - Debbie,

I bought this a few years ago and it's still going strong. Its a good quality build, but.. The top section has a wider grid which allows wild birds and rats in. I have solved it by attaching extra chicken wire but it was a faff. Have had rats in the past so now it stands on a concrete base and I dont leave any feers or food out over night.

Excellent Purchase - Sera, NSW,

Originally bought a similar product from another company and the service and communication was terrible. I should have gone to Omlet in the first place. Zero regrets with our purchase. Easy to set up. New chickens have settled into their space. Everyone is happy.

Great solution for flockdown - Sophie,

We already had an Eglu Cube with a 4m run and some fencing, but with a few more hens than last year and lockdown returning, we couldn't keep them shut in just the Cube run. So we invested in a 3x3 walk-in run. We still have the Omlet fencing in place ready for when the ladies are allowed out again. Construction was relatively straightforward (my husband could do everything except the bottom part alone) and the space is great. I'm very glad we made the investment. The only slight issue was DHL. We were waiting in for an entire 2 days for them and they only finally delivered when they did because I complained to Omlet directly. Omlet were very good in dealing with this.

works for ducks - Carolyn,

I have the chicken run for my runner ducks. We do not have and Omlet house because the door is not tall enough but the house we have fits in and we have a food and drink feeder. It’s great to be able to walk in to the run for cleaning. On one occasion we made a cover from a tarpaulin and it blew over so we bought a small cover and it works well.

Fabulous solution to flockdown!! - Sally, West Midlands,

After having to keep our fluffies restricted for months 2021/22 separating them into smaller groups to give them room in pens keeping them safe from avian flu. It was heartbreaking to think of doing it to them again after watching them become a complete flock over the summer months. So when restrictions were reinstated again we were desperate to find a solution. We’ve had omlet runs for over 10 years so was the obvious place to turn. We ordered 2m x 6m walk in run where we put our omlet coop inside. It’s been a great success 8 happy silkies with room to roam safely and access to the warmth and laying facilities they need. We have covered the roof and sides of the run with see through waterproof protection in complance with avian flu laws.

Amazing quality - Amanda/Jeffrey,

We have now extended from a 2x2x3 to a 2x3x4. Also bought the cube and now looking at the gutter coverings. Easy to assemble as long as you follow the guide. This in its self was very easy to follow. Looks like you have lots of screws ect.... but very simple. Yes it might look a bit pricey, but you will have saved loads for the future, have peace of mind and know Mr fox aint getting your birds! You cant put a price on safety and good quality. Now my girls are ready incase we have a flock down, and have a good size enclosure and warm snug house.

Beware: NOT snake proof!! - Emma,

We were so excited to get our walk in chicken run and thought our chickens would be safe and secure, so you can imagine our devastation when we found a 2m carpet python strangling our mama hen a couple of weeks ago. I was in disbelief that the run could have failed but we realised quickly enough that the snake could easily fit through the holes in the upper wire panels. We now have chicks to hand-raise, a run that is not predator-proof and we have lost our favourite hen. Very upsetting for the kids! I feel so disappointed because up until now I've been really happy with Omlet products, but I can't get past why the run isn't made from smaller snake-proof mesh.

Omlet Says: Dear Emma, Thank you for taking the time to bring your experience to our attention. We are sorry to hear of the loss of your hen and we understand how difficult this must be for your family. As indicated in our FAQ, the lower half mesh is 25 x 75mm, and the upper half mesh and the roof panels are 50 x 75mm. Our engineers designed the panels in this way for safety reasons related to the weight and structure of the run. While the strong materials and thought-out design makes it extremely hard for predators to get to your pets, unfortunately no run is 100% predator proof. For our customers living in regions with specific types of predators able to fit in the dimensions of the mesh, we would recommend adding an extra layer of smaller mesh around the roof and the top panels to prevent these predators from going inside the run. Nevertheless, we understand that every product can be enhanced, which is why your experience has been shared with our Product Design Team, and further investigations will be done in order to try to improve our walk-in runs even more. We extend our deepest sympathies to you and your family, and we remain at your disposal for any query. Yours, The Omlet Customer Services team

Just Perfect - Amanda/Jeffrey,

We live on the side of our mountain in Wales. We have so much wildlife around at all times, so when we looked into rescuing chickens, we had to be certain we could supply them with safety. Our Omlet pen is the best way to make sure our girls are safe and protected, but most of all happy! Honestly, my oartner us like a kid in a sweet shop when he goes on the Omlet site???? You literally get what you pay when buying anything. The walk through pen is easy to assemble, sturdy and can be extended, which I have to do next! Excellent value for money, peace of mind, highly recommended and 'Just perfect x
