The pole clips are very hard to fasten at least 4/5 of the time. I have to fiddle and fiddle with them. August in Florida is not the best time to be doing this (ordered in April). I just finished my 4th day of working on it for 4 hours straight. I am far from finished. My husband heard of Omlet on NPR at least 15 years ago and I have wanted one ever since. Boy was I wrong.
Kit is well put together. Some extra plugs for the poles would be nice.
Please let me be finished with this run Hell. I think I have been working on it my whole life. Review for: Walk in Chicken Run - 6ft x 6ft x 6ft

Due to the larger mesh size in the top half of the run small birds such as Robins can get into the run meaning it is not Biosecure. Quite simply this is not good enough. Why are Omlet selling products that do not meet basic DEFRA guidelines. The runs should be supplied with the smaller mesh panels all over, not just the bottom half.

Omlet Says: Thank you for your feedback.
As the current situation is not an everyday issue, the bigger mesh sizes on the top don´t usually cause for any concern. The DEFRA guidelines have been set for this specific outbreak of the avian flu and are not a general guideline for outdoor runs. To make the run secure, we offer a variety of covers, that are flexible, removable and will offer the needed security for your chickens. Your birds will be protected with the addition of those covers and a smaller mesh size would still require you to cover the roof, to avoid bird droppings falling into the run.
