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
3 March 2022
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!

My chickens chose this system.
1 March 2022
I have to start by saying I had two of those wooden coops/pens which I had attached together. It said it was good for 2-3 chickens, so two would be fine for my six. Well they looked cramped, so I ordered just a pen to attach more space, but they still looked cramped. I would never live that way. Suddenly, I found the Omlet Eglu Cube and sticker shock caused me to wait and reconsider. However, my chickens weren't happy, as a first time chicken owner even I could tell. I decided to buy the Eglu cube, my husband went ballistic, so I told him it was a gift. Due to the weather this year, we took some time to assemble it, although normally it could be assembled in a few days, but it was December.
We finally finished the cube and one day, one of my chickens got out of the wooden coop. I left a side door open to get her back in. What happened next was hysterical. My chickens had noticed the Omlet under construction, and when they got the chance, one by one, they left their coop and marched themselves into the Omlet, where they had been ever since. They adjusted to it quickly and they certainly had enough room. I loved the automatic door and light. However, for them to live their lives in it, I wanted them to have more room and stretch their wings.
We ordered the pet run and again, due to weather conditions, it took us several days. Our chickies were happy in their Omlet Cube though. We connected the run to the cube and the chickies went flying into the Pet run. Our hens were about 20 weeks old at this point and nary an egg was laid. Suddenly we got one egg, two eggs and so on. I know they were at right age, however their home is much more livable now. I decorated the tall corners with silk wisteria (I live in an HOA and were keeping them hidden). From our neighbors point of view, it's an arbor. The chickens are quiet unless they have laid an egg or when I come to hand feed them.
The Eglu Cube and Pet Run is an expense, however it is low maintenance, easy to clean & retrieve eggs and gives me room to go in and socialize with my chickies. I didn't know about the Omlet when I bought my first coop, and feel I've wasted my money on them. However the Eglu Cube & Run is the only way to go in my opinion. I'm disabled and am able to keep my chickens happy and this system is as low maintenance as it can be.
Eventually, after the whole system was erected, and my husband saw how wonderful this system was, I confessed to buying the Eglu Cube, and he said "whatever it cost, it's worth it" and I agree. Thank you.

The solution to an inadequate coop and run combo
4 May 2022
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.

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. Review for: Walk in Chicken Run - 9ft x 13ft x 6ft

Fort Knox for chickens!

The walk-in run has been the best-ever Omlet purchase/investment. I live in New England where we get snow and icy conditions for many months out of the year. The walk-in run provides a safe space for the chickens to roam during the months when the coops are stuck in place because they're frozen into the ground or snow prevents you from moving the coop around. I bought the largest size walk-in run available (9ft x 13ft x 6ft) and have never regretted it. I bought Omlet's heavy duty tarps that provide cover over the run panels. This allows for my chickens to have plenty of room while not having to trudge through snow and ice. I cover the ground in the run with straw that I get in bales from the local Agway store. Living in a place that gets a lot of snow, I did buy the Eversprout Never-Scratch SnowBuster roof rake on Amazon to clear the snow from the tarp panels. It works great for those storms with heavy snow. Review for: Walk in Chicken Run - 9ft x 13ft x 6ft

Directions on putting it together are not good

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. Review for: Walk in Chicken Run - 6ft x 9ft x 6ft

Easy to Assembly (Relatively)

I purchased this coop for its mobility, and for it's ease of assembly. So far I've got no complaints, and the run itself seems to stand up to South Louisiana storms quite well Review for: Walk in Chicken Run - 9ft x 13ft x 6ft

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

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.

The hens are happy again!
27 March 2022
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.
