The Eglu Classic comes complete with everything you need to get started. Everything you need to start keeping chickens

The Eglu Classic Chicken Coop is everything you need and want from a chicken house. Offering a standard of living not seen before in chicken house design, it is fitted throughout with a slatted floor that allows droppings to fall cleanly away, protecting your chickens from walking on a soiled floor. The integrated nest box is comfortably curved in all the right places to provide a cosy place to lay eggs. To make collecting your eggs easy, the Eglu Classic has an eggport which you can open from the outside giving instant access to the nesting area.

Low Maintenance

Routine upkeep of this fantastic chicken coop is a simple 5 minute task thanks to the slide-out dropping tray and fully removable lid. You can also be sure of the time and money saving benefits of owning an Eglu because it's made from modern energy-efficient polymers that never need to be treated. The Eglu Classic is naturally weather resistant and will last for years. At the end of its life it can be 100% recycled.

The slide out droppings tray makes cleaning your chicken coop easy The slide out droppings tray makes cleaning your chicken coop easy

The Eglu Classic Chicken Coop is quick and easy to clean with a slide-out tray that neatly collects all the droppings. The droppings are naturally high in nitrogen which makes them a great source of food for your plants. Add to your composter to make a fertilizer that your garden will love. For a top to bottom clean you can also remove the Eglu's lid. The smooth plastic surfaces can be washed with a hose – no difficult corners or absorbent materials to hide anything unpleasant.

The Eglu Classic has the most fox-resistant run on the market. The run has a free-ranger door so you can let your chickens roam the garden.

The optional (yet recommended) 2m run is made from strong steel welded mesh, impossible for predators to break. A unique anti-tunnel skirt sits flat on the ground and prevents animals from digging in. The run has spacious vertical sides and gives your chickens plenty of room. You can extend the run in 1m sections if you wish. The Eglu can be positioned on grass or any other surface such as wood chippings or rough ground where the chickens can rummage.

The unique tunnel-proof panels have been proven in rigorous testing to be fox and badger resistant. The run means that when you are out and about you can be sure that your chickens are safe. The dark green coating is designed to let the run blend into your garden and is fully bonded to the steel mesh, ensuring an extremely durable finish that looks great.

The run comes in sections for easy transportation or storage and can be assembled in minutes. The end panel opens for access to the feed and water containers and to let your chickens out. The Run can also be attached to our Walk In Run.

Easy Operable Front Door

Let your chickens out in the morning and shut them away at night using the front door. Easy to use, and perfect when you want to keep your chickens out in the run while you clean the inside of your Eglu or collect those freshly laid eggs!

Nest Box and Roosting Bars

The Eglu has roosting bars for your chickens to perch at night and a discreet nesting box which can be filled with straw, shredded paper or wood shavings.

Access to Fresh Eggs

Removing an egg from the nesting box, through the egg port

Collect your eggs easily using the Egg Port on the side of the Eglu. Collecting your eggs every morning is such a thrill. You will get between 8-12 eggs per week from 2 hens.

The Eglu Classic is warm in winter and cool in summer with its innovative twin-wall construction. Twin Wall Insulation keeps your chickens cool in the summer, and warm in the winter!

The Eglu is specially designed to keep your chickens warm in winter. The Eglu has a unique twin-wall insulation system which works in a similar way to double glazing trapping a pocket of air which provides a very effective means of insulating the house.

...And Cool in Summer

In summer your chickens will be kept cool by the Eglu's draught-free ventilation system, carefully designed to avoid air blowing directly over the roosting area whilst allowing fresh air to circulate.

Garden size recommendations If you want to keep your chickens on grass we recommend that you move your Eglu around every so often to keep your lawn in tip top condition.

Ideally your garden should have a fence all the way round, this will prevent your chickens wandering into the neighbour's garden and, more importantly, ensure that all the eggs are laid on your side of the fence! The fence should be about 1.5m (5ft) high.

If you do not have grass, it is possible to keep a couple of chickens but you must provide them with a layer of wood chippings to rummage about in as this will give them the right type of surface underfoot.

Our girls love there best box - Suffolk,

This nest box and run was the first one that we had got from Omlet, but our girls love it, there is plenty of room in the box, it is easy to take apart and clean, I would really recommend it.

Happy me and Happy hens! -

I am delighted with the Eglu Classic, and my 3 rescue hens think it’s great too. My one reservation is that it is not easy to move, not impossible, but I wish I’d known before I bought it but maybe I should have done more research. Otherwise I can thoroughly recommend it.

Eggcellent ???? -

Super quality, easy to put together ( I did all by myself ) would highly recommend

My hens and I love it - East Sussex,

I bought the Eglu for my girls when we moved house just over a year ago and it is a dream come true! (I've wanted an Eglu for such a long time, mainly because they look so cool!). Since owning it I've found that the Eglu is so much easier to keep clean than the old wooden coop which seemed to cling onto the dirt. Red mites were also a real problem but since moving to the Eglu I haven't seen a single mite! Doesn't take me long at all to clean the Eglu too which is also a bonus. A year on the Eglu still looks brand new. The sunshade that came with the Eglu sadly ripped a few weeks ago - I think the UV might have made it brittle possibly and then become battered in the wind but I just put a tarpaulin over the run which works perfectly fine. The run that came with the Eglu seems very strong and I trust 100% that a fox wouldn't be able to get at them. The grass underneath the Eglu and run did get destroyed so be prepared to put some bark down! I'd also recommend either buying the run extension or fencing off a bit of the garden like we did - I think the girls appreciate the extra space! My experience of keeping chickens has improved since getting the Eglu and I think the girls seem much happier and healthier too!


This Eglu Coop is perfect for 2 hens! I would not go back to a wooden one and would recommend this to anyone starting out keeping hens! Happy hens lay lots of eggs!
