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

Excellent product! Struggles a bit on slopes - Sasha, West Virginia,

Bought this for my girls after a dog came over their old (open top) fencing. Upsides: -Instructions are fairly easy to figure out. I wish there was a bit more wording in addition to the pictures, but I got there -Covered run provides extra security -Double door lets me drop in treats without the girls escaping -6' tall model lets my girls stretch their wings. The easter eggers in particular love it. -The color is pretty unobtrusive, several neighbors were baffled with how we were keeping our girls in such a small space. Downsides: -This is definitely not made to work well on uneven ground. I live in WV where the land is absolutely never even, and it made assembly a bit of a nightmare and it still sits very skewed. Makes it a bit of a struggle to close the lower door and several points don't quite meet -It would be nice to have a latch between the top and bottom of the door so you could pull them both closed or both open at once if needed. It's come up a few times when I'm working in the run, so I'll probably jury rig something at some point -Some of the parts stick in the bottom of the boxes, so make absolutely sure you have EVERYTHING out of your boxes before you toss them. I've taken to pulling my boxes apart and collapsing them just to be sure

Walk in hen enclosure.Size 3x4x2 - Jacquie,

Everything is perfect but 1 star less due to the extremely poor instructions and videos. This is definitely a 2 person construct, and start very early. You'll need all day for this larger size. It's good and sturdy. Door is well made and easy to use. Even though it was a bugger to put up, I would buy it again..

Great product - Sean,

The walk in run provides a strong, secure area for poultry. It is easy to put together. The one caveat I would add is that it really requires two people to construct which is not, I believe, made clear before ordering.

I couldn't have made a better choice! - Melissa,

OK, I'm patting myself on the back for being so smart, but my walk-in coop and attached Eglu and Run are awesome! I bought the 9'X13' Walk-in Coop and the big Eglu, which I attached to the coop with a 6' Run. I wanted lots of room for my hens, but as an older single female, the construction and weight of many of these coops from other companies was just beyond my abilities. I am so happy with my purchase! My hens, all four of which I bought as pullets, learned to use the Eglu after only two nights of me picking them up and stuffing them inside. Now they happily march up the little ladder every evening. I also installed the automatic door, which shuts them up securely when it's good and dark, and opens for them in the morning, even when I want to sleep in. I have four Barred Plymouth Rocks, which are a larger breed, and they love the Eglu. One has matured enough to lay, and she uses the nest box side of the Eglu to lay an egg every morning. I put some straw in there and she got right to work! It's safe! I've watched neighborhood cats and possums march in frustration around the coop at night. And its so easy to clean! I slide the tray out and dump the dried poo into my compost every couple of days, and once a week I remove the roosting bars and the tray and spray them down with a hose. Genius! You have a first-time chicken owner who is a very happy customer!

Very safe for chickens - Margaret,

After a visit from a fox (took three chickens) I decided to take the plunge. I bought a total of 6m by 3m by 2m run to attach to my eglu cube. I was delighted when it arrived the following day (all 18 boxes!). Having watched the video I found it easy to erect. For those concerned I am 68, female and 4ft 10ins tall and assembled the run on my own. To make it more difficult I decided to enclose an apple tree within the run to provide shade for the chicks. I am absolutely delighted with the result. It is so safe for the chicks but so accessible for me. Not cheap, but we'll worth the outlay.

Sturdy, well camouflaged chicken run. - Karen,

I bought this run approx 1 month ago and haven't regretted it. Initially ordered 2x2x2 for two large chickens but recently decided to add on another panel for extra room. I love the way it blends in tastefully with the garden. Also like being able to stand inside it. As a newbie chicken owner I bought a substandard, but pretty wooden chicken coop which fits inside the run easily. However, now I have researched a bit more I regret not buying the omlet plastic coop as it seems so much more functional. The Omlet run was easy to assemble as was the add-on panel . I'm waiting for the sun shades to arrive now as obviously can't leave them in the run in a heat wave without shade so they are free ranging atm during the day. We have lots of foxes that roam around but the design of the 'skirt' that surrounds the run makes me confident that my hens are safe. I also purchased a pack of pegs to reinforce the security of the run which were well worth the money. In sum, expensive but you get what you pay for.
