My chickens absolutely love this perch! I also like it - especially design of the attachments, as they can swivel and therefore be configured in many different ways in the run.
Unfortunately, the 2 wooden pieces of my 6ft perch both came with some cracks in them, and after a week of having the perch out I can already see that the integrity of the perch is weakening. Given the price, this quality issue is a big disappointment, especially considering that I love the product itself.
Overall, I am happy with the product, but disappointed that I'll probably end up having to purchase another soon due to the cracks.

Omlet Says: Hi Marissa, thank you for leaving us a review. The perches are made from naturally weather resistant eucalyptus. Eucalyptus is a very hard and strong wood, as it's a natural material you will find some splitting along the length of the pole, this is not a defect and is part of the wood's characteristics.
I would like to assure you, the perch should not weaken over time regardless of these cracks. Please feel free to keep an eye on this and contact us if you have any further concerns.
I bought this for my chickens a little while ago. it is a fantastic idea and my birds love it however over the months of having 6 perching chickens on it every night the join has become weak and the pole ends have split causing the pole join to break and come crashing down with the birds on it.
unfortunately one of my beloved hens sustained a nasty leg injury and is now unable to walk and scratch about as is second nature for the hens, she looks quite sad and unhappy, as am I. the pole is a brilliant idea but if you have the full 2m joined pole please do be mindful that a collapse is possible.

Omlet Says: Hi Jane, I'm so sorry to hear about this. This is extremely uncommon! Please feel free to take some photo's and send them into our customer service team, it's something we would definitely like to look into.
Just purchased my second one of these as my hens love it. Took them a while before they used it but once they did they are on it regularly. Works great in my Omlet run. Good value for money when you consider it is so adaptable to different setups, Omlet or not...

This is a fantastic perch, it is ideal for the hens I have. It’s really sturdy.

I was able to easily install this on a bitterly cold Christmas Day, so my hens could have a present !

Great perch, easy to put together.
Our girls jumped onto their new perch as soon as it was fitted. We love watching them jump up & down & it's long enough to accommodate all six girls at once, so everyone is happy. It has been a great addition to the run. They love it!
I added the 6 ft perch to the walk in run, very easy to put up and it does not move/twist around like a branch would. I just ordered the 3 ft perch to put lower so they have options. Great product.
Very well made nice to be able to custom fit it.
my old and new chickens love this. will post photos soon. get at least one you will not regret it.
