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.
I bought a 2x3x2 m chicken run with the eglu coop. It took 2 solid days to put it all together and my fingers were rather sore at the end. But it was all worth it. This is an extremely user-friendly arrangement, easy to clean. Locks work, etc. One of the feeders did not shut properly and I had very prompt replacement. The swing does not get used,they prefer the perch. I have 3 chickens and would not put any more in this arrangement. ( I let them out, whenever at home)
bought the Eglu up, which the girls really took to. they love the shade of the next box. then added the walk in run, which is really well built and totally secure. it's all surrounded by the chicken fence, which again is a great product. Did find it a little tricky to put together at first, but once we got the hang it went up well.
The Walk In Chicken Run was easy to install and sturdy. I connects easily with my Eglu Cube. My 6 chickens love it.
I seem to recall seeing something about this taking a couple of hours to put up. Ha! It took 4 of us about 4-5 hours to get it done. It all looked a bit wobbly but once it was all clipped together it is rock solid. Overview really pleased with it now. It's attached to our aged egglu and we move all of it every week or so so that the chooks can get some fresh grass under their feet. Worth the set up pain!
This is my second purchase of an Omlet run. Easy to assemble and built to last. Very happy with the product
