This past spring, one of my newest sponsors, Omlet, sent me one of their chicken fencing kits. Having moved to a new place with more predators and more areas for the girls to get into trouble, they quickly realized that they had a solution to one of my very essential problems. Despite supervising their free-ranging, I was yearning for a way to keep my girls contained in a single area while I could continue to work in the yard nearby. My problem was solved when their fencing arrived on my doorstep.
The fencing arrived in a relatively small box. The fencing itself required some assembly. My goal was to wrap the fencing around the back of the coop and connect it to the small fenced in portion of my yard. Assembly went quickly and only required a screwdriver. The directions were very simple and easy to understand. I put it together all on my own. The fence is very versatile. It can be designed into the shape of your liking. It is around 4 feet tall and even comes with a mini-makeshift gate to easily access the area if you choose to create a completely enclosed area. A number of small metal stakes help to anchor the panels to the ground.
We have used this fencing for over 8 weeks now. I do not take it down and have in fact also enclosed my veggie garden in the area as well. It has worked incredibly well. Smaller critters are blocked by tighter netting at the bottom of the fencing verses the top portion. Initially, we had a few “bigger” nocturnal critters come in and get trapped. They seemed to have clambered over. The only trace they left was the fence was leaning down in some areas. The good news is that was short lived. Those night time animals quickly learned to simply go around. We have had an occasional nibble at the fencing from wildlife without great damage. It has been out in rain storms and wind storms and is still in near perfect condition.
My favorite things about Omlet’s Chicken Fencing:
- Love the green color that blends into the natural scenery
- Thrilled with the quality of this fencing
- My chickens have not attempted to fly over
- Ease of assembly and moving it out of the way for mowing the lawn
- Pleased the chickens are a bit safer from daytime predators that come through the yard. It’s one more layer of protection.
The fence does not claim to be predator proof. It is not electrified but I do believe that it would give me a few extra moments to get my flock to safety as a potential predator figures out the best way in. We only give the girls access to the area when we are out with them.
I always wait a while when trying out new products because I want to be sure that they are something that I use in my own yard and garden. I have found myself asking why I waited so long to try a poultry fencing. Now I bet you are too! One of you are going to win this same chicken fencing (138 feet) for your flock. Enter below! You can learn more about the fencing here.
Retail value: $200.00 USD.

The fence I am using now is not user friendly. I would love to win this fence. It would make my girls happy, too. 🙂
Looks like a handy product-I could use some portable fencing. Thanks for the giveaway!
I could keep the hens off the patio and finally have a poop free patio. My husband will be happy.
Keeping my chickens away from my landscaping and giving them a safe area to scratch/free roam!!!
I am so glad you brought this up and are giving us a chance to win this fencing! I like what I see, and even more what you have to say about it. Thank you!
We back up to woods. We have done what we can, but a fence like this would be peace of mind, on top of what we have already done.
This fencing would be a great help in getting our chickens on grass. We would love to win this giveaway. Thank you for the opportunity!
I totally need fencing like this. This looks so natural and perfect for my yard. My girls keep escaping my makeshift fence 😛
This would be great for adding another layer of protection for the chickens
Love how it blends in!
I would have to keep a close eye on my girls with this fence as they would be over it in a heartbeat. My girls can easily clear 5′.
This sounds like a great option! We have some leghorns who are of the mindset that they can go wherever they want!
I love my chickens and would like to keep them safe while freeranging!!
We could use the extra help of the fencing….. Free ranging here can cover 2-4 acres …. Kind of far afield!!! Lol
I would love the fencing to put around our fruit BTE garden, the the girls could work the chips and weeds for me!
I have two Rooster’s that like to go off by themselves. It would be great to have them contained so I know where they are. It’s also nice that you can pick it up and move it around. Thank you for drawing my attention to this product and for the great giveaway.
Perfect timing finding this post! My daughter is about to lose her mind over the daily chicken invasions in her fairy garden 🙂 It would be awesome to keep the pooping on the patio to a minimum as well!
Thank you for addressing the lawn mowing! Now I can report that a fence does not interfere with lawncare. And I love the option for opening the gate to enter. Sounds amazing!
I love that it’s a green color and will blend in with natural foliage, and also that it’s a high quality product.
I too would like a way to keep the girls in a specific location while working in the yard. This fencing sounds like a good way to accomplish this and keep them safer.
This looks like a fantastic solution to allow the hens to range a bit further while staying safe….
-perfect solution for temporarily keeping the flock away from new plantings, while allowing them to enjoy foraging on the lawn and in the mature gardens.
While our girls have an enclosed run, this looks like the ideal solution to keep them safe and yet out with us while we’re tending to the garden or just relaxing at the end of the day!
Love this. Thanks for giving people the opportunity to win!! Our girls always get into out garden. This would be great to give them their own space.
looks like i could easily set it up and it fades nicely into the background
What a great giveaway!
Oh man! This is the answer I’ve been looking for to get my chicks grazing when I’m in my garden! Thank you!
this is awesome!!! so need this! thanks for sharing! <3
Would love to win!
It’s good for keeping chickens safe.
We already have our garden fenced off but this is a great idea to keep the chicken zones adjustable. Plus, a way to keep our puppy safely in his own area.
Thus fence is way more attractive with what I am using to keep the chickens out of the veggies!
I learning about a new product. Thanks for sharing!
easy to set up and move.
What makes me most excited is thinking of my sister and how excited she would be to have this!
I like that I would be able to manage this fencing on my own.
I like that it seems lightweight/easy to move around – might be good for mobile applications!
This sounds perfect for our new set up. We converted a barn shed into a coop but it backs up to our neighbors yard and the chicks love to run straight back there to her trees and forage. I love that it would blend in to the surroundings.
Looking forward to your new book, “How to Speak Chicken”; I pre-ordered it from Amazon. I love Omlet products! I purchased a Cube in late May for my flock of 5 which arrived 2 weeks later. I purchased a used Eglu Go Up and 4 more chickens in early July. Will be introducing the 2 flocks to each other in another week or two. The fence would greatly facilitate having 1 flock vs 2 in individual runs. Have had nothing but excellent service from Omlet. I consider this a great choice for someone new to chicken keeping.
I’m so glad I found this post! I lost one of my ladies this week while they were free ranging. It broke my heart when she didn’t come home and I feel terribly guilty about it. My girls have a nice sized secured run but nothing compares to having their freedom. However, I’ve been too worried to let the remainder of my flock out of my sight and have been contemplating building a bigger run. Omlet’s fencing seems like it would give my flock a little more freedom while keeping them safely close by. It would be a much cheaper and less hassle than building a new pen.
I love that your chickens haven’t attempted to fly over it. I need something like to protect my garden from the girls.
love how it blends in with the landscape and that the chickens don’t try to fly over.
It will keep the chickens out of the garden
It’s a barrier to keep the girls in and our cats, and other critters out.
It’s great to add a layer of protection for the girls! (And boys!)
This would be good protection for my girls. It looks really secure.
This would be great to keep the chickens contained while I’m working in the garden. It’s just a little peace of mind to know that they’re not wandering off into the woods!
it would keep my pastured hens in my yard, and not in my neighbor’s flower beds LOL
It looks really nice, and it would save me the $200 bucks!
It would keep the girls safe while I’m working in the yard and would keep them out of areas I don’t want them!
This past spring and early summer we had a horrible situation with a fox and her three kuts. We list about 30 of our flock before we finally got control if the situation. It was so heartbreaking. We love free ranging our flock but this would keep them a bit safer.
I love how this adds secure free ranging time!
I love that it looks so easy to work with and adds a secure “free range” area for the girls.
This would be a great addition in keeping an eye on my feathered friends!
It would be wonderful to give my chicks more room to run around.
I could keep my hens confined to a certain area while I am working outside!
I could let my birds range a bit again!
Excited for the girls to have more space to “free range” !! Thanks for the opportunity 🙂
First off, I am so excited that I stumbled upon this post! I did not realize that there were so many people that were interested in chickens! My mom and dad always had chickens when we were growing up. I had always been interested in them but as I got married and had children and moved into the city I myself no longer had chickens. When I met my husband, his mother was a collector of eggs. She always had a basket of glass eggs on her table. When I had asked her about them she had explained to me how they used to “trick” the hens into laying eggs by putting a glass egg underneath one. That was absolutely fascinating to me! Since then, I have been an avid collector of eggs, egg holders, real eggs, marble eggs or anything that has to do with the eggs! So you could see why stumbling across this site would be so interesting to me! I truly never thought there was someone that loved eggs and chickens the way that I did! I’m so excited! And the pictures that you take Tilly, are absolutely beautiful! I did notice that the giveaway for July had already been picked. How often do you have these giveaways and how long are they posted for? I was also wondering if any one saved any of their eggs? I know how to blow out the eggs and clean out the inside so they don’t smell and was wondering if anyone would be interested in shipping me some of the more powerful or interesting ones? Of course I’d be willing to pay for postage. I hope everyone has a wonderful night and I hope I found a new set of friends that are interested in chickens and eggs as much as I am! Because around here, I am the only person that I know that is crazy about eggs! Thanks a lot! Leah
We use snow fencing. A bit cumbersome to keep from falling if not staked properly, but seems to work well.
That’s a great idea. Thanks for sharing it with our community!
I use cardboard fencing. It may sound a little unstable, but I use sticks to make the fence more stable, and me and my dad wrapped hardware cloth all over the fence to prevent predators like raccoons from getting our chickens.
Be careful with the cardboard as it will loose strength and deteriorate overtime as it is exposed the elements like rain. You might want to think of a more permanent solution to keep your flock safe.
Thanks, Me and my dad made a fencing by planting steel rods into the ground, and then we filled in the gap between the steel rods using chicken wire.
Is that good enough?
For supervised free-ranging when you are out with the chickens yes.But unless you clip their wings, they can fly over if they so desire.
I’m gonna try snow fencing too. Its gonna snow a lot today!
