The solution to an inadequate coop and run combo - Dina, West Sussex,

I have 4 pullets and though the coop I purchased has enough room in the "sleeping quarters", the built-in run itself was too small for them. This run was a great solution. It gives my girls more space and allows me to be in there and clean, etc without getting in their way. It's made a world of difference in their comfort and my upkeep of the coop.

Pain to put together but result was great. - Susie, Fife,

Boxes arrived banged up and I was missing a few parts. The instruction aren’t as good as the previous products I have ordered. I had to reassemble the roof a few times as the pieces were not fitting. Chickens love the play pen and it was worth the 3 day install.

Directions on putting it together are not good - Jennifer, North Somerset,

The directions aren't very clear. We had to go on Utube several times to figure out which clasps go where. Other than that it's ok.

Expensive, not entirely thought through and impossible instructions...but it does the job well! - Russell, North Somerset,

Because of the continuation of avian flu in the U.K and because, and despite of the 3m Iglu Up run (which we already had) being stated as more than enough room for 3 birds, we felt that it really wasn't. So, we bit the bullet and paid £623 (I think) for a 3 x 2 x 2m walk in run to act as an extension to their 3x1m current roaming area whilst they the hens have to be contained. The website firstly has a 'order now for delivery tomorrow' feature which was a little annoying (given postage was over £20) as the items wasn't even dispatched until the next day. Not a massive biggie but just as well I didn't take the day off to stay in. Several boxes then arrived - 9 I think, and boxes were well marked with their contents. But Omlet - please start using biodegradable tape! It's 2022 and we flattened all our boxes to go on our veg beds under a new mulch but had to spend hours tearing off the miles, and miles of sticky tape. Then we saw the instructions. I can honestly say that you would have a greater chance of understand 'Quantum Physics for Advanced Beginners' than you would understanding these instructions. There has been no user experience testing done 'in the field' quite obviously because the instructions make certain assumptions but you have to work these out for yourself. Once we started to get the run built it went together quite well but because the upper mesh is larger than the lower, it doesn't meet DEFRA guidelines for keeping wild birds out. We knew this upon ordering so upon building, we covered the top part of the enclosure with fine net meshing. We also fitted welded mesh all the way under the floor area so as well as Omlets built in anti-dig barrier, we also had a full barrier thereafter for any determined vermin or foxes. But all this took us a whole weekend between 2 pretty fit and able adults. I must add a note though that I had questions regarding the run attachment from the current Iglu Go Up to the enclosure - I wanted to knopw if we could close the door from the old run still where it meets the enclosure (extra security at night, cleaning etc). The lady on the phone said we couldn't. But that's not true...because we did, And quite sucessfully. In fact, using our build method, I would say the run is more structurally sound than if we followed the instructions in their entirity and removed the whole end of the old run. Overall, it's not bad. Is it worth the money? The hens do love it, I must admit. They can flap about now, they have 3 x the original footprint and twice the height in the enclosure section. But given the cost of delivery (which really narks me when I've spent so much with Omlet in any one order), the poor instructions, the fact you have to build so much of it yourself and the actual outlay cost - I'd say the jury is out. It is secure though, and so much so, we did away with the electric fence around it after a week or so. But recycled materials, biodegradable packing tape, better instructions and no delivery charges over say £250 would make this a lot more paletable to me.

Omlet Says: Hi Russell, Thank you for this detailed feedback. We are glad to hear that your hens love their new accommodation. Your suggestions have been passed on to our Product Design Team and they will take them in consideration for future improvements. There is no mention 'order now for delivery tomorrow' on our website. As indicated on our Delivery Information page, 'If you order a product that is in stock, it is normally dispatched within 48 hours but please wait to receive your despatch confirmation email to know more about the delivery date of your order.' The delivery times then depends on the courier, which usually ranges between 3 and 5 working days. You will also find this information on the Delivery Information page of our website. If you had some difficulties with the written instructions, we would recommend you to watch our instructions videos, available here. They show a member of our team assembling our products step by step, which can be very helpful as a complement to the manuals. The member of our team who you were in contact with gave you the correct information. If you use the connection kit as per instructed, the coop run door cannot be used anymore as it is replaced with the connection kit for Walk-In Run. As you highlighted it, you found an interesting alternative by using 'your build method'. We have thoroughly tested our products according to the instructions that you will find on your Omlet manual, ensuring a strong and sturdy assembly. We would not be able to guarantee the optimal use of the products and their safety in the case you choose to operate different assembly methods on them. We hope that this extra information will be helpful, we remain at your disposal for any further information. Yours, Omlet Customer Service Team

The hens are happy again! - Catriona, North Somerset,

I bought this recently after the hens flockdown polytunnel didn’t survive the storms. I only wish I had bought this first! The hens are happy and secure in it - I have covered it with a tarpaulin roof - and I can join them in the run for cuddles ???? Very happy with the quality and design.

Smaller mesh needed - Diane, Fife,

Overall a good product but the mesh really needs to be 19 mm x 19 mm or smaller to keep out weasels and rats.

Highly recommended - Christie, Fife,

I bought this before the onslaught of the storms in February to provide a covered space for my chickens to be in. It is spacious and sturdy, easy to use latches on the doors and looks great in my small garden.

Wonderful large walk in run - Keith, West Sussex,

Excellent quality run. Comprehensive construction instructions. Parts arrived well packed and marked. The difference this large run has made to my girls’ lives in this A ‘flu lock in is amazing. I have put wood chippings down and the girls are happily scratching around without getting muddy. This gives them plenty of space to run and I can place perches further apart for those that want to sit on their own. The ease of entry with the stable door and head height for me are fantastic - no more stooping and stretching to reach into my old run. I have bought conversion kits for my Omlet Go houses and have integrated my Go run which could also give me an isolation/nursery coop if needed. So glad I invested in this. I have very happy hens!
