No room for it in the eglu cube, and the chickens are still confined because fo bird flu - Adam, east yorkshire,

Disappointed - Deborah, east yorkshire,

I set the two swings, one in each of my Omlet runs, just above ground level and not one of my chickens has tried it. After doing some research I found a US you tube video which describes how you have to train the birds to use their swing. First set it low level, stand in front of swing with some corn to entice them on so they get used to the way they have to grip the rail. Then gradually raise the swing. I’m disappointed that none of this procedure is described on your website. I feel the product is mis-sold and I have wasted my money. 2

Omlet Says: Hi Deborah, Thank you for your comment. You will find a link on the Chicken Swing page called "10 Steps to Swing", offering many tips to assist you and your chickens. This link can be found on the main product page, under the section called 'The Best Boredom Buster for Chickens'. We hope that this will help, don't hesitate to contact us for any further information. Yours, Omlet Customer Service Team


We'll get there one day! - Wendy, east yorkshire,

Great training guide on manufacturers website. But my chickens have not yet taken to it. 2

Not used yet but still hopeful - Annette, east yorkshire,

As we only have a small run and only 3 chickens I don't think anyone can be bothered to use it yet, the just prefer the static perch, but I will keep trying 2

Great quality - Sarah, east yorkshire,

Bought this for my new chicks to give them something to do when in the coop run. They are only 8 weeks old so haven’t used it yet but they are very good at getting up high and I’m sure the swing will be a hit once they figure it out. 2

Looks really good in my walk in run. - Elizabeth, east yorkshire,

I put up the swing in my walk in run. I have only had my lovely ladies just over a week now so they are still getting used to their new home. They have pecked at the swing but none of them have ventured on it yet. However we have had a lot of windy weather so this might have put them off a bit. I’m sure they will use it eventually. 2

Chickens don’t use it - Owen, east yorkshire,

Solid, construction fine but as per other reviews. Chickens simply don’t use it. Still frightened if it moves after over a month 2
