My wife and I use this fencing for out little group of 4 chickens. It's a great product, nice and tight seal at the base. My only suggestion is to include one more post, as we could have used that to get a bit more of the shape we desired.
We purchased the fencing in order to temporarily confine the chickens to a rose garden. it was easy to erect with 2 people in order to avoid getting tangled with the roses. From a distance the fence is almost invisible with the shrubs behind it. The only issue was that the ground is dry and loose, so the pegs were inadequate. I stapled the rear of the enclosure to a wooden path edge, and used longer tent pegs to provide additional security elsewhere. One chicken, a leghorn, has escaped twice, but otherwise all secure. Our young Spaniel took an unhealthy interest, got his head stuck a couple of times, and chewed 2 small holes. We have solved this using a low power electric fence at dog height.

Great for keeping the chickens in a designated area of the garden when needed ! Easy to erect and move, well pleased with my purchase !
I am delighted with this fence. It was easy to install, and does the job of keeping my three hens in "their" half of the backyard - thus sparing the garden and the patio from their ravages, while still giving them plenty of space to roam. Worth every penny.
I bought two lengths of this fencing to allow chickens into various parts of my fallow garden and redirect them as I start to plant. While waiting for delivery I set up a bit of temporary fencing with inexpensive plastic material and bamboo poles. As to the Omlet fencing...
PROS: It stands up nicely, even in pretty strong winds. The netting offers little wind resistance, and the poles and guying work well. The fencing seems pretty invisible from a distance, which is good. I'm particularly impressed with the poles, which work well even in soft soils.
CONS: The system may be well designed for enclosing an area, rectangular or circular, but it is not well suited to, say, a two sided area partly bounded by a building or fixed fence. The gate is designed to be at one end of the Omlet fence and the gate latch on the other end. Cutting the netting to put a gate in the middle isn't effective -- netting edges are stronger than midpoints, and cutting causes fraying. Working the "gate" is a two-handed operation and inconvenient. The fencing isn't easily adaptable for adding or reducing length.
I am super happy with the omlet chicken fence. It worked perfectly for my small area keeping the chickens happy in their own corner of the yard. It does not stand out blending in well with the surroundings.
We use our omelet chicken fence all the time to keep the chickens in the part of the garden we want them working in. It is easily moved because of the double spikes. It has made life a lot simpler as we can keep the chickens from pooping on the verandah!
Excellent fencing. Easy to assemble. Looks great and functions very well. Love that its able to be moved so easily and configured into any shape. We use it as our chicken run along with the eglu. Very happy with our purchase:-)
We purchased the 12 metre fencing and are absolutely thrilled with it. It keeps my 4 little silkie girls contained, but gives them extra room to roam around. I find its really easy to move when mowing, and I love the fact that I can make a different shaped run each time I set it up. We purchased extra poles as well, which I think is of great benefit regardless of how many metres of fencing you buy.
Easy to put up. Looks quite good. Only issue I had was that my dog made a hole in it on the first day. That was not an Omlet problem- more a nosy dog problem,
