Really hard to put together - Jason, Berkshire,

This thing was impossible to put together with the clips that come with it, it doesn’t help that the instructions offer little, if any, actual instruction. After an hour trying to attach 1 set of clips, I almost threw out the entire thing. Thankfully, I’m handy and went to Home Depot for pipe claps (the metal fasteners that screw together to get tighter). Once I had those, putting it together was a breeze!

Omlet Says: Hi Jason, Thank you for your feedback. It has been passed on to our Product Design team for further investigation. Don't hesitate to look at our instructions videos in complement to the manuals. You can find them at the bottom of the page, under the section 'Assembly videos and and manuals'. If you find the clips a little stiff when you first use them, we would recommend you to put them in warm water before using them. Once placed on your run, they will allow the structure to be sturdy and durable. We hope that this will help, don't hesitate to get in touch with us for any further information. Yours, Omlet Customer Service team

Easy assembly, looks sleek - Wells, Berkshire,

It took a while to get it put together, there are a lot of clips, but it was simple enough. It's not heavy like wooden coops. It doesn't have that country vibe like wooden coops so it's more modern. I also love that I can open just the top door to give the girls scratch without them being able to get out.

safe space - Kate, Berkshire,

The chickens were free range, but things were a bit out of control on the property. We were losing a few to coyotes too. We are very pleased with the space they now have. Everyone is safe and secure.

2m x 2m walk in chicken enclosure - An Omleteer, Berkshire,

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

Omlet Says: Hi SC, 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.

Easy assembly, sturdy - Jeff, Berkshire,

When we started with chickens we knew nothing about Omlet, or chickens for that matter. We got 6 chickens and a hand made wooden coop. We determined that we needed a protected run. I researched several options and decided on an Omlet run for its construction, and reviews. We purchased a 6x6x6 run. It arrived quickly. My daughter and I assembled it easily in an hour. The run is sturdy and looks great. The "barn style" make entering the run easy. Soon after our flock expanded to 9 chickens. We needed to expand the run. We ordered a 3x3x3 extension pack. True to form, adding the extension pack was fairly easy and straight forward. The run has been visited by several coyote without any damage. This is a well thought out, easy to assemble, and durable (3 months and counting) system. We are currently adding an eglu to house an injured hen. We do highly recommend the Omlet brand.

6’ Chicken Run - Gigi, Berkshire,

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.

Lots of space for happy chickens and kids! - Maria, Berkshire,

We live on a typical suburban lot, so free range wasn't an option. We attached this run to our Eglu Go Up - and now the chickens have plenty space (and the kids have a safe way to hang out with the chickens). Still waiting on some covers to weather proof it for the winter. I like that you can sort of customize it and put the door and the connection panels wherever is convenient. It was a long day of clipping to put it all together, but it's not that hard.

I wish I had never heard of this company - Audrey, Berkshire,

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.

Love this walk in run - Kathy, Berkshire,

So glad we went with a walk in run. It makes visiting and feeding the girls so easy. And saves my back from lots of bending! I also like the amount of space it gives my chickens for walking, scratching, and eating, We added boards rebar hooks around the perimeter as we will need to hold down the covered structure once we have a winter Nor’Easter come through.

Great Customer Service - Marianne, Berkshire,

Excellent customer service from Sue, who politely answered my queries, helped me decide what I needed, and got my delivery organised for the following day. The walk in run (2m x 2m x 6m) I bought is really good quality and came with easy to follow instructions and is easy to construct. I did so on my own, all I needed was steps (I'm short) and a screwdriver. The boxes (14 of them!) are well labelled and everything is very well packaged, so arrived in good condition.
