Good choice, but go bigger! - Jane,

I bought our fence back in May so our girls could have more room to roam but also leave my garden intact! This has done the trick. I put it together entirely by myself. It took a night and a day (but because I ran out of daylight the night before and didn’t start til after supper. 2 folks are a good idea to actually put it up in your yard. The fence is “wobbly” without the lines that make it taut- they attach to the poles and go into the ground with tent pegs. Those things make all the difference. My chickens respect the fence in that they don’t try to “jump” it even though they squawk unhappily when I close them in. They just want run of the whole yard and to eat my garden. Except my Rhode Island reds- they refused to be hemmed in and if they’re feeling especially froggy, they’ll jump the fence in a hot minute, leaving their irritated too-fat-to-fly orpington friends and the obedient barred rock girl behind. I got the 40some foot one, and should have gotten the 60’ one. I have 7 hens and will be introducing 4 pullets in several more weeks. While this is plenty large, if you have especially needy and dramatic queens of the yard, you’re gonna want more room or they’ll get cranky.

Looks good but not squirrel proof - David,

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.

Love the fence, but chickens fly over - Jeremy,

The fence is great quality and easy to set up. Unfortunately my chickens can be very motivated to fly over. Well they fly on top of the fence and roost first, and then drop to the other side. Their wings are clipped. Save by a new fence, I'm not sure what to do.

Omlet Says: Hi Jeremy, Thank you very much for taking the time to write us a review about your fencing. We are sorry to read about your situation. Our current fencing is already taller than most other types, at 1m25. If necessary, you can always adjust the poles of the fence to ensure that the netting remains tight and secure at all times. Usually, wing clipping is the most effective method indeed to prevent chickens to fly away from the fencing. Some breeds might be able to fly higher and better, however this would normally be the case of wilder breeds, unlike our domesticated chickens that are bred to lay eggs. If you wish, don't hesitate to contact us by email or by phone if you have any further request. Best Regards, Clemence Omlet Customer Service team

Material not strong enough -rabbits eat through it - Sarah,

I purchased the chicken fencing. Within 24 hours of installing it, it was eaten through by rabbits in 6 different places with big enough holes that the chickens walk right through. The material is so flimsy it is useless to keep animals from eating through it! Highly disappointed in the quality of the mesh.

Brilliant fencing ! - Jane,

Light sturdy and easy to erect and move. The spike and foot bar on the bottom of the poles make it so simple to place them in the ground.

Works a treat - Tracey,

Bought to segment off some of the garden and also for separating as and when necessary

Great fence solution! - Colleen,

This fence is a great option for my yard in for the chickens. Very nicely made and user-friendly. I did eventually purchase the eglu chicken coop and it was a bit of a redundancy for the space that I was working with so I no longer use it but still appreciate its design.

Fencing posts - Wayne,

Really great posts and perfect for the job we needed them for.

great but - - Liz,

If your hands are not nimble, you may need help to assemble these poles. The buttons are really tricky. Due to lockdown I had to wait until I could catch someone else to do it for me. The extra poles have proved their worth though. Also, I have plans to give them an afterlife as supports for pea netting.
