The walk in run provides a strong, secure area for poultry. It is easy to put together. The one caveat I would add is that it really requires two people to construct which is not, I believe, made clear before ordering.

OK, I'm patting myself on the back for being so smart, but my walk-in coop and attached Eglu and Run are awesome! I bought the 9'X13' Walk-in Coop and the big Eglu, which I attached to the coop with a 6' Run. I wanted lots of room for my hens, but as an older single female, the construction and weight of many of these coops from other companies was just beyond my abilities. I am so happy with my purchase! My hens, all four of which I bought as pullets, learned to use the Eglu after only two nights of me picking them up and stuffing them inside. Now they happily march up the little ladder every evening. I also installed the automatic door, which shuts them up securely when it's good and dark, and opens for them in the morning, even when I want to sleep in. I have four Barred Plymouth Rocks, which are a larger breed, and they love the Eglu. One has matured enough to lay, and she uses the nest box side of the Eglu to lay an egg every morning. I put some straw in there and she got right to work! It's safe! I've watched neighborhood cats and possums march in frustration around the coop at night. And its so easy to clean! I slide the tray out and dump the dried poo into my compost every couple of days, and once a week I remove the roosting bars and the tray and spray them down with a hose. Genius! You have a first-time chicken owner who is a very happy customer!

Having spent over a thousand pounds on a chicken run and egul, I am really disappointed that the design is flawed, so rats can easily get in and out. I purchased the run because we of the strong wire and skirt around the outside would stop the rats. I even buried extra wire under the ground of the run to stop them tunneling in it but it was all a waste of time and money. The rats just use the wire sides as a ladder to get half way up, where the gaps in the wire are twice as large so they can get through. The only way to stop this is to make the whole run the same sized wire as the lower part. Review for: Walk in Chicken Run - 9ft x 13ft x 6ft

Omlet Says: Hi Mark,
Thank you for your feedback. It has been passed on to our Product Design team who will take it in consideration for future improvements.
Unfortunately, rats are indeed able to squeeze themselves into small spaces, and an external solution would have to be found to keep them away.
Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any question.

The pole clips are very hard to fasten at least 4/5 of the time. I have to fiddle and fiddle with them. August in Florida is not the best time to be doing this (ordered in April). I just finished my 4th day of working on it for 4 hours straight. I am far from finished. My husband heard of Omlet on NPR at least 15 years ago and I have wanted one ever since. Boy was I wrong.
Kit is well put together. Some extra plugs for the poles would be nice.
Please let me be finished with this run Hell. I think I have been working on it my whole life. Review for: Walk in Chicken Run - 6ft x 6ft x 6ft

Due to the larger mesh size in the top half of the run small birds such as Robins can get into the run meaning it is not Biosecure. Quite simply this is not good enough. Why are Omlet selling products that do not meet basic DEFRA guidelines. The runs should be supplied with the smaller mesh panels all over, not just the bottom half. Review for: Walk in Chicken Run - 6ft x 9ft x 6ft
Omlet Says: Thank you for your feedback.
As the current situation is not an everyday issue, the bigger mesh sizes on the top don´t usually cause for any concern. The DEFRA guidelines have been set for this specific outbreak of the avian flu and are not a general guideline for outdoor runs. To make the run secure, we offer a variety of covers, that are flexible, removable and will offer the needed security for your chickens. Your birds will be protected with the addition of those covers and a smaller mesh size would still require you to cover the roof, to avoid bird droppings falling into the run.
