The walk in run provides a strong, secure area for poultry. It is easy to put together. The one caveat I would add is that it really requires two people to construct which is not, I believe, made clear before ordering.

Sturdy, well camouflaged chicken run.
11 July 2022
I bought this run approx 1 month ago and haven't regretted it. Initially ordered 2x2x2 for two large chickens but recently decided to add on another panel for extra room. I love the way it blends in tastefully with the garden. Also like being able to stand inside it. As a newbie chicken owner I bought a substandard, but pretty wooden chicken coop which fits inside the run easily. However, now I have researched a bit more I regret not buying the omlet plastic coop as it seems so much more functional.
The Omlet run was easy to assemble as was the add-on panel . I'm waiting for the sun shades to arrive now as obviously can't leave them in the run in a heat wave without shade so they are free ranging atm during the day. We have lots of foxes that roam around but the design of the 'skirt' that surrounds the run makes me confident that my hens are safe. I also purchased a pack of pegs to reinforce the security of the run which were well worth the money. In sum, expensive but you get what you pay for.

Perfect, great sized and well made

I had to save the remainder of the ducklings from whatever was taking them. The run I had was quite small and mummy duck wasn’t very happy, so I needed to find something bigger. A lot of research later, with the thoughts of cheaper verses quality, I opted for quality and am so pleased that I chose Omlet. The run is well built, easy and quick to construct and is easily adaptable in size. Mummy and babies are very happy in there until they are big enough to free range with the others. Once mummy and babies are released the run will be useful for any hens or ducks that need isolating. In the meantime it will protect my tomatoes from being eaten by the chickens!

Excellent product! Struggles a bit on slopes
5 August 2022
Bought this for my girls after a dog came over their old (open top) fencing.
-Instructions are fairly easy to figure out. I wish there was a bit more wording in addition to the pictures, but I got there
-Covered run provides extra security
-Double door lets me drop in treats without the girls escaping
-6' tall model lets my girls stretch their wings. The easter eggers in particular love it.
-The color is pretty unobtrusive, several neighbors were baffled with how we were keeping our girls in such a small space.
-This is definitely not made to work well on uneven ground. I live in WV where the land is absolutely never even, and it made assembly a bit of a nightmare and it still sits very skewed. Makes it a bit of a struggle to close the lower door and several points don't quite meet
-It would be nice to have a latch between the top and bottom of the door so you could pull them both closed or both open at once if needed. It's come up a few times when I'm working in the run, so I'll probably jury rig something at some point
-Some of the parts stick in the bottom of the boxes, so make absolutely sure you have EVERYTHING out of your boxes before you toss them. I've taken to pulling my boxes apart and collapsing them just to be sure Review for: Walk in Chicken Run - 2 x 2 x 2

2m x 2m walk in chicken enclosure
18 October 2021
Good quality mesh which is pretty heavy, but may not as tolerant of humid tropical weather. A friend's enclosure has started rusting.
The snap clips used for holding the pieces of mesh together are easy to lock but are way too loose to be practical. Required self application of extra cable ties to hold the pieces sturdily together. This is especially if you intend to relocate the enclosure instead of building it onsite. The swing doors and door locks are well designed and smooth. I applied the skirting on the inside of the enclosure instead of the outside due to space constraints. Perhaps this can be included as an option in the installation instructions. I think it works just as well Review for: Walk in Chicken Run - 2 x 2 x 2

Thank you for your feedback. Our runs are being used in countries that can have extreme types of weather, and they were designed to stay sturdy and durable enough in all types of weather. If your friend wishes to contact us, it would be good to try to understand better their specific situation.
The clips are also designed to keep the assembly in an optimal form, and they should not be loose once installed. We would recommend you to watch our instruction videos in order to ensure that the clips have been correctly installed. You can find these videos here.

6’ Chicken Run

We have an Eglu coop with older hens. We wanted to get new chicks, so we purchased a new Eglu coop and put the Chicken Run in the middle. We alternate access to the run between the old ladies and young girls. Review for: Walk in Chicken Run - 2 x 2 x 2

Great run when up, but fiddly to build
15 March 2018
We built this with a neighbour helping (3 of us) and found it quite fiddly. It was a cold day and we didn't warm the clips in hot water (we did when we bought the extension kit later!) so they were very hard to clip. We also found later that we had put the bottom panels facing different ways (they are slightly different on each side). It didn't affect the structure. We would have like the various pieces numbered, perhaps with a tag on each, and then the numbers marked out on the picture in the instruction manual. We originally bought a 2 x 2 x 2 but knew when we had more cash we would buy an extension - it is great that you can adapt it as you go. We now have a 3 x 3 x 2 run. Making the run bigger the second time was much quicker, with the clips in a bowl of hot water. As it was a wintery day the warm water helped warm the hands whilst softening the clips - ideal as it was hard to use the clips wearing gloves. The ordering / delivery was excellent - I think we received both orders within 2 days and on the day promised. Review for: Walk in Chicken Run - 2 x 2 x 2

I bought my walk in run second-hand. The previous owner supplied all the clips, but told us that she'd resorted to using cable ties instead. As I have arthritis in my hands, I did the same. The clips were too fiddly. My entire run is held together with cable ties, and they work. Once the roof is on, it seems surprisingly stable. Not difficult to put together and it fitted beautifully to my coop. Looking forward to letting the hens out in it tomorrow. Review for: Walk in Chicken Run - 2 x 2 x 2

Delighted with run. Glad I bought a full height one as my girls like resting on the roof of their coop using it as a sun terrace. Also prevents me having to stoop. Yesterday though the latch broke and slipped off in my hand. Awaiting a reply from omlet as to how to rectify this. Review for: Walk in Chicken Run - 2 x 2 x 2
Walk in run

I have bought the walk in run, but last night the latch fell off so I couldn't lock the bottom door, so I will calling today. But other than that, it is great I love that they have more room plus it is easier to clean as I can stand up in it. I would of given it five stars if the door had not broken.

I purchased my walk in run a few months ago and I must say I really like it. Putting it together wasn't the easiest of tasks but I managed and it's given the chickens so much more space. All I have to say is make sure that you build it where you want it to stay because it is really heavy!! Review for: Walk in Chicken Run - 2 x 2 x 2
