It arrived quickly which was great. However, I found it ridiculously difficult to get up. I don't have help, so when it said it was fast and easy to do, I thought it would be! stringing 16 poles through the mesh net, having to start from the bottom and work up the pole, was very hard on the back, and trying to stay in the right row was not easy. Maybe with 2 people it would be more manageable, but for just me, it was horrible. So far I have the gate up...3 hours later. Its now 90 degrees out so perhaps tomorrow I'll be more successful. I'm disappointed for sure. My suggestion: have help.
We purchased the fencing in order to temporarily confine the chickens to a rose garden. it was easy to erect with 2 people in order to avoid getting tangled with the roses. From a distance the fence is almost invisible with the shrubs behind it. The only issue was that the ground is dry and loose, so the pegs were inadequate. I stapled the rear of the enclosure to a wooden path edge, and used longer tent pegs to provide additional security elsewhere. One chicken, a leghorn, has escaped twice, but otherwise all secure. Our young Spaniel took an unhealthy interest, got his head stuck a couple of times, and chewed 2 small holes. We have solved this using a low power electric fence at dog height.
I will send 2 pictures
This fence has worked out pretty well. We have two standards and two bantams. The standards stay in but the bantams (one in particular) get out fairly often. I've discovered that they jump through the larger holes (above the smaller mesh panel).
I really love this fence for my chickens. They were used to free ranging all day so it has taken them a bit to get used to it and 2 of the 4 chickens were able to escape the first week, but after adding more pins to the base, it is rare that one escapes. My only complaint is that the directions do not specifically say how far to space the poles (except for the door) so I messed that up at first. Overall, very easy to install, and could be done very quickly with 2 adults, but still manageable with one!
The Omlet fence is even better than expected. Although chickens do get out occasionally,it is not the fault of the fence! We just have some high flyers
Other than hen flying out over top before trimming her wing no trouble. Had the advantage that perimeter already had stout posts so did not need all stakes and also much of the edges also had wooden edges embedded.
I have only positive things to say about Omlet - the chickens love the extra space afforded to them by the fencing and from our perspective it is both sturdy and flexible at the same time. In terms of customer service, one of the pole spikes was broken and Omlet replaced it without a problem and sent a few spare poles as well!
This is my 2nd purchase of this fencing my chickens have now had an extension with this 2nd purchase. My original fencing is still going after 3 years!
It's fairly easy to relocate around the garden and keeps them in their area.
It's also blends in well in the garden.
Nice high fence that even my flying hen and cockerel can't get over . However didn't really need the length I bought but glad I did as am able to double the fence and I think a pole every 2 metres might have made the fence a bit wobbly . Think 1 pole every metre probably a safer option .
The chicken fencing is good but the chickens can still get out by flying over the top it would of been better if it was slightly taller
