can a chicken be a pet?
That was the very first question that our four founders asked themselves in the final year of their product design course at the Royal College of Art in London. They left university in the summer of 2003 with the very first Eglu prototype, a coop design that challenged the norm and the dream of pet chickens in every home.
Behind the designs
For 20 years, this inquisitive approach to design has created remarkable products that bring people and pets closer together. Our questions make dreamers of engineers, watching and learning from our animal’s behaviour, we design solutions that make you ask - why hasn’t it always been done this way?

the curious collective
Our Curious Collective may have started with four. But it has grown into a global community of thousands of thoughtful pet owners all looking to do what is right by their animals, not necessarily what is expected.
We’re Omlet, the pet company that endlessly asks. Since 2004, we’ve set out to rethink every aspect of keeping and caring for animals. Product designers first, we ask so we can invent.
asking led to these inventions
