We are loving our walk in chicken run. A fox has been seen around but so far he has had no success. We did decide to lock them in the eglu every night after we saw the fox- helps us sleep well! The chooks are loving the space and it means that we hang out with them which is fun. We are empty nesters so the chickens are our new kids.
A very well designed product and great
An incredibly well built, easy to install (well, I’m only passing on the feedback from my partner and sons who actually built the thing!) and stunning addition to my garden. Such a pleasure to spend time inside it just hanging out with my girls - I’ve installed a chair in one corner as I spend so much time in there with them! Fabulous, Omlet. Top marks.
It's good looking and provides great protection for my ducks. This was something I could put together myself without having to cut anything, although it was very nice to have Dad help me and hold up the roof panels while clipping everything in. I'm very happy with it, and maybe someday will expand it to be larger.
My hens love the space and height that they have to explore in their fab new run. It was easy to build up and is very easy to clean down the floor covering wood chips.
My fellow chickens and I love our new enclosure. We feel safe from hawks, raccoons and cats, yet we have lots of room to roam around. Our humans can spend time with us inside, even the tall ones; they don’t have to crouch. The humans said it was easy to assemble!
I am delighted by the look of our 3 X 2 X 2 run, which is surprisingly elegant in design and so pleasing that it actually improves the garden. It seems airy and spacious and the hens seem to like it very much. Much nicer than the publicity photos suggest and excellent customer service!
Run is attractive, convenient to use, and sturdy. Some assembly challenges, mostly securing the clamps. Shipping notification apparently got mixed up, but everything arrived close to the original estimated date. Might be ordering another to expand the hen playground.
Thank you, it is an ingenious design. With a bit of concentration we deciphered the instruction booklet to check we had the right components (which were not always in the package ABCDetc, as described in the booklet), but everything was indeed there and it was relatively straightforward to follow the construction instructions. The more you do the easier it gets - we found my fingers were small enough to put the pole clips through the lower mesh panels but not strong enough to clip them together in some of the more awkward positions, however my husband was the other way round, so with good teamwork we got it constructed quite quickly. We found it easier to split over a few days, rather than attempt it all in one go. Our garden is on a slope but the run is quite 'forgiving' as the 3 x3m spot we chose to site it was pretty even.
Our 2x3m walk in run arrived at 12.30 yesterday just when my tradesman Damian was taking his lunch break. Fortunately the run came in just 3 or 4 boxes which were mainly less than 10cm deep x the size of a panel. I’d been fretting that the boxes wouldn’t go through the garden gate! Damian had spent the morning levelling the ground and blocking gaps under fences etc. He started assembling the run at 1pm after lunch and finished about 5. I liked the way he kept referring back to the Omlet video. He said it was an easy job but then he is well over 6ft tall so could easily reach the roof parts and very strong. We sited the run over an existing Japanese cherry which we lightly pruned to fit (so now it’s a big bonsai!) So the run looks really nice in the garden. Am very very pleased with the Omlet products I have purchased.
