I bought this to replace the old style Omlet fencing which had broken over time. It is much higher and the hens can no longer escape underneath it due to the smaller netting at the base. Our new pullets have managed to fly over, but now they are putting weight on they are finding it harder!
I have three of the 21m fences and one of the 12m and I use them not to keep chickens in, but out! I fence off areas of my garden when I don't want the hens there, like my fruit bushes in the summer, and my vegetable garden, and let then have the run of the rest!
The fences are a hassle to put up as no matter how carefully you gather them up they get tangled something crazy, but they do a great job of keeping chickens out.
This fencing was good, which is what I always expect from Omlet. AND my little chicks cannot get through it at the bottom! This fencing keeps my chickens in the 'wild' part of the garden, which is very rough, and on a steep incline. My 'nice' garden is blooming. Hurrah!
This is such a fantastically well designed, useful fence for the croft. The hens get a super large run which is moved about regularly and the girls are scratching up the ground ready for us for digging. It is lightweight and strong. Flexible to use, practical and I can move it on my own. Though it is nice when someone helps too:)
Much admiredby fellow crofters! The hens like it too and don't try to escape.
Great for keeping the chickens in a designated area of the garden when needed ! Easy to erect and move, well pleased with my purchase !
I am delighted with this fence. It was easy to install, and does the job of keeping my three hens in "their" half of the backyard - thus sparing the garden and the patio from their ravages, while still giving them plenty of space to roam. Worth every penny.
We recently purchased this fence and decided to go with another Omlet product after being delighted with our Cube we bought previously. We received the fence and were surprised to find that the poles that came with it were very light plastic and the fence itself like football goal netting. Not deterred by the seemingly low quality of the product we thought for £200 it would prove us wrong and be fit for purpose. We sadly have been disappointed as our chickens fly over the fence, the poles are flimsy and it appears to have a hole in the netting where the string has untwined itself. All in all I would not recommend this product and look elsewhere.
Very easy to put together, and to change position.
I bought both the 68ft fence and the second largest one... I was worried about how the fence might hold up to our WI winters... so far so good! So simple to assemble, I could do by myself or with the aid of my 9 year old son. Now that I have 2 fences, I can set one up while they are still enclosed in the other. I will definitely keep buying this product as long as I am keeping chickens! (and I love my chickens:)
Previously owned an electric fence that was tedious to move and re errect, and thought this might be a suitable alternative to deter our new hens from wandering off.
Easy to errect and easy to move and re errect. Hens happy inside and can not wiggle through the net. Unlike old fence when power low. Only addition that I have made is a single electric wire threaded through the second row of "holes" to act as a deterrent for visiting rats, squirrels and rabbits that often wish to join the flock.
