The fence looks great and does a good job of keeping the hens in, initially at least. However, after a few weeks we noticed various holes appearing along the bottom of the fence and the hens escaping. It turns out the plastic fence is no match for visiting squirrels and they will destroy it in no time. A good product in concept but will not last.

Omlet Says: Hi David,
Thank you for taking the time to write us a review about your chicken fencing.
We are sorry to read about the squirrel issues that you are experiencing.
Unfortunately, as stated on our website, the fencing has not been designed to be predator proof, only chicken proof. It is made to keep your chickens in a specific area only. However, we are selling repair kits, available on our website that can help to fix the damages done by the squirrels.
I stay at your disposal for any further information.

Flimsy, cheap material. You could most certainly make something of higher quality more inexpensively yourself. Review for: Omlet Chicken Fencing Mk2 - 39ft - inc. Gate, Poles and Guy Lines
Omlet Says: Hi Marie,
Thank you very much for taking the time to write us a review. We are very sorry to read that you feel disappointed in the quality of the fencing. Your feedback has been passed onto our product design team who will look for further improvements.
The material may seem flimsy to you, however I would like to reassure you about the quality of your fence. The type of netting provided offers great flexibility to allow you to manage your installation in the most optimal way for your space, with the help of the poles and the gate. This movable chicken fencing is much easier to install than chicken wire and the netting is tangle proof. All these added features do not change in any way the durability of this fence, suited to work in any type of weather. You can also always buy extra poles separately if you wish to make your setup even sturdier.
We stay at your disposal for any further information,

Our 3 chickens all flew over the top of the fence within 10 minutes - so pretty much a waste of time unless you put a net over the top Review for: Omlet Chicken Fencing Mk2 - 21 metres - inc. Gate, Poles and Guy Lines

Omlet Says: Hi Peter,
Thank you very much for your review, it is very important to us to be able to improve our products.
The overall height of our fencing is approximately 1.25m, which is actually taller than most chicken fencing. However, if you find that your chickens still manage to fly away, I would recommend you to have a look at clipping the wings of your chickens. It is very easy to do and it does not hurt your chickens. You can find a step by step guide on our website, in our guides for chickens. Here is a link to access to that guide.
We stay at your disposal if you need any further information,

Product looks great in pictures but I have had to use wooden posts around fence to hold up as not enough metal stakes provided. There should be another 4/5 metal stakes provided for this product- really disappointed with the purchase as bowing without additional wooden posts I have added Review for: Omlet Chicken Fencing Mk2 - 21 metres - inc.

Omlet Says: Hi Steve, really sorry to hear this. Please contact our customer service department and we would be happy to arrange for some more metal stakes to be sent out for you!
I’ve had this fence for two weeks and I guess it was a possum that Ate a hole in the back corner in the fence. Now, I have new holes after patching old holes. Every few nights, there’s a new whole, and then I have chickens everywhere. Great idea in theory if you’re in a concrete jungle, but this fence won’t hold up too much. I live inside the city and have just a few big trees in the area. Even my large chickens have managed to break a few pieces of fence. Review for: Omlet Chicken Fencing Mk2 - 138ft - inc.

Omlet Says: Good morning Jeff, thank you for your review.
Unfortunately this fencing isn't predator proof, it is only intended as a means of keeping your chickens in a contained area. This is really helpful feedback though. I will make sure to pass it onto our product design team as it's definitely something we can look into.
My 17 week old chickens flapped over this easily. I clipped their wings, using the omlet video as my guide, and it still isn’t high enough. A waste of money!! Review for: Wall Connection Kit for Omlet Chicken Fencing

Omlet Says: Chickens like humans are all unique, some have better aerodynamic capabilities than their peers and might be able to fly over even with their wings clipped, this however isn't very common.
They are still very young right now and will get heavier with age, this should slow them down for any jumping ventures they have planned for in the future!!
I was excited to purchase this product as I was hoping it would solve my problems by allowing my chickens to roam but not have free range and destroy my garden. Unfortunately I was extremely disappointed with the product and as such, have not been able to use it and it is now collecting dust in the shed. The fencing is advertised as being high enough to keep the chickens in - within an hour one could escape and by the end of the day all 3 were able to escape. The fencing itself feels filmsy and even when securing it to the ground with the pegs and ties it started to sag. I would be concerned how secure this would be in windy condtions. Back to the drawing the board. Review for: Omlet Chicken Fencing Mk2 - 21 metres - inc. Gate, Poles and Guy Lines

Omlet Says: Thanks for your review Cindy. I'm sorry to hear that you aren't all that satisfied with your purchase!
We usually recommend that if your chickens are able to escape our fencing that you clip their wings, this is of course completely safe and painless for them. If this is something you might consider, I have pasted a link to our YouTube tutorial of it which might be of some use to you.
In regards to the fence sagging, the guy ropes should help the fence to stand up straight and minimise the flimsiness.
I hope you find some of the above useful and I will still be sure to pass your feedback onto the rest of our team.
