EGLU CUBE

What comes before the chicken and the egg? Our answer - a better coop. We designed the Eglu Cube with ingenious solutions like smooth surfaces for quick and easy cleaning, fox proof mesh and a 10 year worry free warranty.

We’re Omlet and since 2004 we’ve been rethinking every aspect of keeping and caring for chickens. Inspired by the magic when humans and animals connect, we watch, learn, ask and invent. Our products will make you wonder: why hasn't it always been done this way?

Frequently Asked Questions

Depending on what you have ordered and where you live, your Eglu Cube is normally with you within 3-4 working days of your estimated dispatch date. You will receive an email with tracking links once the order has been dispatched from our warehouse, and you can always track the order using the link in the confirmation email.

Once the coop has arrived, the house will take a couple of hours to assemble, and the run an additional hour or so, depending on which size run you have chosen. Your Eglu Cube comes with a comprehensive instruction manual that takes you through the assembly process, and you can also watch this step-by-step How to build video.

The strong materials and thought out design of the Eglu Cube makes it extremely hard for predators to get to your pets.

That being said, no coop is 100% predator proof. Check the coop and run regularly to make sure all features are working as intended, including latches, doors and run clips. If you live in an area with lots of predators, including smaller animals like martens and weasels, you might want to consider adding additional protection to the run.

The Eglu Cube has twin wall insulation that works in a similar way to a flask. The coop retains the heat produced by your chickens to keep them warm in winter, and stops the cold air from penetrating the walls. How warm it will be inside depends on how many chickens you have in the coop, and whether or not you have left the door open.

Similarly, the insulation will keep the coop cool in the heat. This, in combination with excellent draft-free ventilation that circulates fresh air throughout the house and the possibility to move the coop into a shaded spot in your backyard means the Cube will be a relaxing, cool space for your flock to return to on hot days.

If you live somewhere very cold, an Extreme Weather Cover is a great addition to add extra protection to your setup. The cover keeps the coop warmer for longer, and is especially useful if you’re only keeping a few chickens in your Cube, as the body heat from huddling together in a larger group will help your hens stay warm during cold winter nights.

The metal chicken runs are designed to be used outdoors for years to come. However, we recommend that you check the run regularly for signs of corrosion, especially if you live somewhere with extreme weather conditions or close to the sea. Corrosion will occur if the coating has been scratched or scraped for example. If you do see some, remove any loose rust and touch up with a weather resistant paint. If you have covers on your run and experience heavy snowfall it's advised you clear the snow off the roof to avoid the panels being damaged from the weight.

While the Eglu Cube doesn’t have traditional wooden perches, it has specially designed roosting bars with a structured surface and rounded corners where the chickens will sleep comfortably at night.

Roosting bars allow the chickens to grip onto something while they sleep, which makes them feel safe and comfortable. As they climb up into the Cube to roost, they also get the reinforced feeling of being off the ground. Although they don’t look like traditional wooden perches, roosting bars are great for larger breeds who find it tricky to jump up to a raised perch, or recently rescued hens who don’t have the strength to flap, and the shape of the bars makes sure most of the droppings fall straight onto the removable tray underneath.

The size of run you need depends on how many chickens you have, what chickens you have (breed/size/personality), and how much they are allowed to roam free outside the run. Always aim to give your chickens as much space as you can, either by letting them free range in the garden or backyard or by getting a bigger Walk in run attached to the run of your coop. If you're not able to extend further, try moving the coop and run as often as possible or changing the soil or wood chips regularly. If you're having difficulty deciding what run size to get, feel free to contact our customer service team who will be happy to help!

The Eglu Cube house is suitable for chicks over the age of 12 weeks. We recommend you remove the roosting bars from inside the coop until the chicks are big enough to perch and walk across the bars safely. The Eglu run is not suitable for chicks under the age of 12 weeks without supervision due to risk of escape and predators. Chicks may struggle with the ladder to begin with while they are small, so you may wish to lift them in and out of the coop yourself, or convert the ladder to a ramp. You should use plenty of bedding in the coop to keep the chicks warm, and change the bedding every few days.

If for any reason you’re unhappy with your Eglu Cube, you can return it to us for a full refund within 180 days if it’s dismantled and packed up in boxes for a courier to collect.

Our worry-free warranty covers free repairs and replacement parts for up to 10 years of your Eglu’s long life, should you experience any defects in the materials or workmanship.

The metal chicken runs are designed to be used outdoors for years to come. However, we recommend that you check the run regularly for signs of corrosion, especially if you live somewhere with extreme weather conditions or close to the sea. Corrosion will occur if the coating has been scratched or scraped for example. If you do see some, remove any loose rust and touch up with a weather resistant paint. If you have covers on your run and experience heavy snowfall it's advised you clear the snow off the roof to avoid the panels being damaged from the weight.

If you buy your Eglu Cube with a run, the Autodoor comes with an integrated mounting bracket to fit the control panel on the mesh of the run. If you buy an Eglu Cube without a run, you will receive a different bracket, so that you can fit the control panel to the side of the Cube house. This bracket can be bought separately here.
Although it might take chickens a few days to get the hang of the ladder, the new and improved ladder grips make sure all chickens will soon have no trouble walking up and down it. If your chickens are having difficulties, or show no interest in using the ladder, place treats on the rungs to encourage them up into the coop.
The partition door can be closed at night if you have a hen who likes to frequent the nest box and make it messy. However, if this is not a problem for you and your hens stay on the roosting bars, the partition door can be kept open.
You don't need to add hay to the roosting bars or droppings tray as they are super easy to wash clean without. However, you should place bedding in the nest box.
Yes, that won’t be a problem. If you want to keep your mobile chicken coop on a slope or in a particularly bumpy area of your garden, we would recommend fastening the run with the Omlet Screw Pegs. These are super easy to just twist into the lawn, thus removing any gaps under the skirt where chickens could possibly escape or predators could get in.
We have not tested the Cube with cats or rabbits so cannot recommend how safe it will be for these pets. Certain features, such as the ladder for rabbits, won't be suitable.
The Eggport door is placed on the left side (when looking at the Cube from the rear door) and cannot be moved.
No, you can move your Eglu Cube without the handles. However, if you have a run that is longer than 2 metres, or if you intend to move it by yourself most of the time, the handles will make it noticeably easier. Please note that the Eglu Run Handles don't come as standard and will have to be purchased separately.
That will be possible, but we do not provide any connection kits for this. If you want to connect your Eglu Cube (with or without run) to your chicken enclosure, we recommend speaking to a DIY specialist to make sure it's done safely.
The stable-style run door will need to be placed at the end of the run. If you want easier access to other parts of the run, you can add a Run Door Self Fit Kit at various places on the run.
The Wheel Arm Track Guard fits in the space where the wheel arm moves across to lock when you lift the coop to move it. The wheel arm goes through the comb-like guard, but it prevents any overly curious chickens to put their head through this space. The Wheel Arm Track Guard is included in all Eglu Cube and Eglu Go UP run boxes as standard from July 2021, and if you have an older coop you can buy it here.
The Autodoor fits differently on each version. The Eglu Cube MK2 already has attachments built into the front face, and installation will only take a few minutes. For Eglu Cube Mk1, you will need a fixings pack to fit the Autodoor to the front of your coop.

Joanna, VIC,
We purchased the Eglu Cube upon recommendation from friends and couldn't be happier with it. It makes keeping chickens simple and very enjoyable for busy people. Cleaning takes a matter of minutes, water and feed can be changed weekly and the entire coop is very user friendly for both the chickens, us and our four and seven year old children. Great product, thank you!

We are so glad that we decided to purchase the omelette cube. Easy to assemble, but more importantly, it is easy to clean and operate. The Auto door is a must. Our girls love it, and we are thankful for that decision to buy this system..

Next level care for our chooks
Michelle,
I've been procrastinating for about 6 mths & researched this product well. Finally purchased before Christmas. The delivery was so fast & thank goodness because Brisbane has been scorching hot followed by crazy storms .... Our 2 Isa brown girls adapted really well to the transition to the Omlet up & go, didn't miss a beat laying. I struggled with the installation.... Not sure if it's cause I suck at this sort or thing 🤷🏼‍♀️ I found the instructions not very clear, the help videos were a godsent. Wasted time redoing a few things... But bottom line is ... On the hottest day & night .... In the morning the girls were fine from the heat & storms. Their little cabin was cool & thanks to the extra Omlet tarp I purchased our chooks remained dry & happy in the 3mtr run. Definitely recommend. I actually said to my mum today, I doubt the girls would have survived the heat & storms in their old coop.
