Disappointed - Deborah,

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.

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


Not a real success story - Jim,

As far as our Silky Bantams go this was not the toy for them; we tried different heights from 100mm to 600mm all to no avail. We have perches that are graduated from ground level up to 800mm and they use these a lot of the time.

Chicken Swing - Katrina,

The Jokes on my for buying "The Chicken Swing". Doesn't matter what I do, place the chicks on it, place the older hens on it, not one of the 8 want anything to do with it. It's still hanging , waiting. Maybe it's my chooks, but if you have to train them to use it I don't see the point!

Looked Intriguing - Katrina,

Bought the chicken swing. My husband thought I was not serious. No swinging as yet. But the comments keep coming. "Any swinging today?" I don't want to train them to use it! I did have expectations they would just jump on. Spent an hour today attempting to place the flock on it. No action.
