I’ve had this fence for two weeks and I guess it was a possum that Ate a hole in the back corner in the fence. Now, I have new holes after patching old holes. Every few nights, there’s a new whole, and then I have chickens everywhere. Great idea in theory if you’re in a concrete jungle, but this fence won’t hold up too much. I live inside the city and have just a few big trees in the area. Even my large chickens have managed to break a few pieces of fence.
Omlet Says: Good morning Jeff, thank you for your review.
Unfortunately this fencing isn't predator proof, it is only intended as a means of keeping your chickens in a contained area. This is really helpful feedback though. I will make sure to pass it onto our product design team as it's definitely something we can look into.
My 17 week old chickens flapped over this easily. I clipped their wings, using the omlet video as my guide, and it still isn’t high enough. A waste of money!!

Omlet Says: Chickens like humans are all unique, some have better aerodynamic capabilities than their peers and might be able to fly over even with their wings clipped, this however isn't very common.
They are still very young right now and will get heavier with age, this should slow them down for any jumping ventures they have planned for in the future!!
I was excited to purchase this product as I was hoping it would solve my problems by allowing my chickens to roam but not have free range and destroy my garden. Unfortunately I was extremely disappointed with the product and as such, have not been able to use it and it is now collecting dust in the shed. The fencing is advertised as being high enough to keep the chickens in - within an hour one could escape and by the end of the day all 3 were able to escape. The fencing itself feels filmsy and even when securing it to the ground with the pegs and ties it started to sag. I would be concerned how secure this would be in windy condtions. Back to the drawing the board.

We usually recommend that if your chickens are able to escape our fencing that you clip their wings, this is of course completely safe and painless for them. If this is something you might consider, I have pasted a link to our YouTube tutorial of it which might be of some use to you - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=750NtdtUgWI
In regards to the fence sagging, the guy ropes should help the fence to stand up straight and minimise the flimsiness.
I hope you find some of the above useful and I will still be sure to pass your feedback onto the rest of our team.
