Give Your Hens More Space to Explore

Thanks to its modular design, it’s easy to adapt your Walk In Run as your flock grows, or you just want to give your hens a bit more space. The extension panels arrive flat-packed with a clear instruction manual. You can also use our step-by-step how to build videos to guide you through adding more sections to your run.

A full height run can be two sections high and three sections wide, but there is no limit to how long you can make it. A half height run can only be two sections wide, but again can be extended length wise.

Please note that these extensions are not compatible with runs bought before 2014.

New mesh design for 2022

The Walk in Run has a new design! The mesh panels will now arrive as two pieces instead of one, attached together with run clips. The stability and integrity of the run is unchanged, and the assembly process remains the same, the new design just makes it quicker and easier for the product to be shipped straight to your garden.

Please contact our customer service team if you have any questions.

Frequently Asked Questions

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!

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.

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 Pro, 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.

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.

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.

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 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.

Omlet Walk In Chicken Run Extensions
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.

I Made a Perfect Omlet :-)
I bought this about a month ago and was tickled when it arrived. I have to admit I was a bit overwhelmed and like others of my kind "I don't need directions, I got this" mentality I forged ahead. I unpacked everything and attempted to use the detailed 50+ page manual but I found that most challenging. It wasn't the detail drawings that were the challenge; however, the directions in several languages required in some areas more detailed explanation. I then pushed it aside and said, "not today." Later that week I decided to take it on again after going to YouTube and finding several videos. The best was from Omlet and strongly suggest its use. I finally made major progress and with an extra week I had it completed. I was successful at putting it together and have a happy, safe home that is easily accessible. I will be making another purchase in the future and I had someone come to pick up some geese I was re-homing and they inquired about Omlets and have plans to order one too.

Best run ever
I have never felt such peace of mind knowing my girls are in this run when I’m not there. It’s large enough for them, secure and easy to set up and adapt. I’m not sure who loves it more, me or them… probably me, it’s great
