Are your chickens cooped up? We designed the Walk In Chicken Run to give chickens more space, without compromising on style, security or size.

We’re Omlet and since 2004 we’ve been rethinking every aspect of keeping and caring for chickens. Inspired by the magic when humans and animals connect, we watch, learn, ask and invent. Our products will make you wonder: why hasn't it always been done this way?

Frequently Asked Questions

While the strong materials and thought out design make it extremely hard for predators to get to your pets, no run is 100% predator proof.

From September 2023, Omlet's Walk in Chicken Run comes with a smaller mesh pitch at the lower half of the run to stop dexterous predators like raccoons from reaching in.

If you live in an area with lots of predators, including wild cats, coyotes and possums, as well as smaller animals like minks and weasels, you might want to consider adding additional protection to the run. If you've seen raccoons around your yard, it's also a good idea to secure doors and latches with extra locks to stop them getting to your flock.

The metal chicken runs are designed to be used outdoors for years to come. However, we recommend that you check the run regularly for signs of corrosion, especially if you live somewhere with extreme weather conditions or close to the sea. Corrosion will occur if the coating has been scratched or scraped for example. If you do see some, remove any loose rust and touch up with a weather resistant paint.

If you have covers on your run and experience heavy snowfall it's advised you clear the snow off the roof to avoid the panels being damaged from the weight.

The size of run you need depends on how many chickens you have, the size of your chickens and how much they are allowed to roam free outside the run. Always aim to give your chickens as much space as you can, either by letting them free range in the garden/backyard or by extending the run. If you’re having troubles deciding on what run size to get, feel free to contact our customer services team who will be happy to guide you!

The Walk In Run can be attached to your house or another building, you can see examples of how other customers have done this in the customer images below. We do however not currently have a ready made solution for this, so we recommend you speak to a DIY specialist to make sure it’s done safely.

All of the Eglu chicken coops can be attached to a Walk In Run using a connection kit. For the Eglu Cube and Eglu Go UP, you need to have a 6 ft. run or longer in order to attach the coop. If you have another type of coop it will be possible to attach it, but again you should consult a specialist.

You should wait until the chicks are at least 6 weeks old before you take them outside. It might be a good idea to keep them separate for the first week so they can get used to being outdoors before having to interact with the rest of the flock, but this depends slightly on the breed and your setup. If it’s cold and wet you might want to wait a bit longer before you introduce them to the outside world.

The bottom 20in of the mesh have a mesh pitch of 0.5 in x 2.9 in, and the upper half mesh and the roof panels are 1.9 in. x 2.9 in.

Yes, you can secure the skirt of the run to the ground with Omlet’s screw pegs to make sure there are no gaps.
It is possible to move the run, but due to the high quality materials even the smallest runs are relatively heavy. If you decide to move the run, we suggest asking for help from at least one other person.
Yes, the door can be positioned anywhere on the run, apart from right next to an attached Eglu.
This depends on the size of your run. The covers are wide enough to stretch over one section of your run, so if your run is two sections wide you will need a 6 ft. cover times however long your run is. If your run is three sections wide, you will need a 9 ft. cover times however long your run is.
Providing the size of the mesh is suitable for your pets, the run is not restricted to use only with chickens. It is often used as a Walk in Duck Run, for example. We do not recommend using the run for smaller birds such as quails without additionally securing the mesh.
The upper half mesh and the roof panel holes are 1.96in x 2.95in, so smaller birds will be able to get through. If you are worried about this, we would suggest adding covers to the roof and side of your run or protect it further with some finer mesh.
The run can be extended to two sections high and three sections wide, but there is no limit on how far the run can be extended lengthwise. It is only possible to extend a half height run height and lengthwise, the width is limited to two sections.
The full height door is 5 ft. 11.2 in. Each door is 1 ft. 10.4 in. wide and 2 ft. 11.4 in. high.

Omlet Walk In Chicken Runs
Great addition
Our Eglu Cube with added 3ft run was just too cramped. It was nearly impossible for me to get in & out because of arthritis in my knees. We got the 6ft x 6ft Walk In Run and now I can change water and fill the feeder with ease. AND our small flock has much more space.

Peck-tacular run
Nick, Rhondda Cynon Taf,
A fantastic run, which easily accommodates our Omlet cube. Good quality and looks great. This size run will take a while to put up, but the instructions are super-clear and I do recommend watching the video first, which makes things really clear.

Perfect size for happy birds
Bernard, New York,
I love the modularity of the run. There are a lot of pieces but they are light. Although it took a whole day, it was easy to put together by one person. Now my birds are happy and their living space is easier for me to go inside and clean.

A really sturdy well made chicken run
We bought this a month ago to house our chickens in the winter. It is actially 3x7x2 (we added on some sections). Tricky to put up by yourself but a doddle with two people. Beautifully made and survived a branch falling on it in the winds yesterday I highly recommend

I knew it was an excellent product and it didn't disappoint
I have bought various chicken products from Omlet before. I noticed the sale and bought an extension area for my chickens which is a big chicken run fully enclosed and it will give them much more space if there is more avian flu without me having to faff about with it. It is straightforward to construct and with the automatic door on the cube house makes it very low maintenance if I need to be away overnight. I love it and will get more eventually for another extension room.for them.
