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!
This coop might as well be magic. Isn't quite as easy to clean as it looks in the video, mind, but that doesn't deter me. I have three Eglu Classics, the first dating back to 2004, and it's still running perfectly. The Bantams live in this coop with Henny. Blossom & Co. live in the second oldest Eglu, which is functioning amazingly. The four Rhode Rocks live in the newest, second hand coop. All thirteen girls are very happy indeed. Moving them to any ordinary henhouse would be impossible now. Yes, it's expensive. But you get your money's worth.
This is the best chicken house we've ever had. It is very easy to set up and even easier to clean. The chickens are very happy with their new home.
We've got a collection of 3 Eglu Classics; just goes to show how amazing they are! The first dates back to 2004-one which is truly original-and best of all, it's still growing strong! The Bantams love it.
We have three Eglu Classics altogether now; however, we are moving soon, so will only have space for the newest (and strongest) coop. The coops are absolutely bombproof. Note that the skirt does not put the rats off, pegs or not! So unless you want the rats stopping by for a midnight snack each night, put the food away when you put them to bed.
I bought the Eglu Classic for my broody hen, she sat on her eggs and when they hatched it was perfect for Mum & Babies keeping them safe from the other hens.
I have just had to get rid of my hens after over eleven years of happy hen keeping. The rat problem had got unmanageable and they had actually eaten through the plastic and were living in the hollow casing of the Eglu itself! However, I have had very good value from the Eglu. If it wasn't for the rat damage it would still be fine and would have many years of use left it in. I have loved my Eglu and I'm glad I made the investment back in 2008. I have had between 2 and 5 hens living very happily and producing loads of eggs. I soon became unhappy with the limitations of the low run and my hens have had the run of a large enclosure at the end of my garden, complete with shrubs and various things for them to play and perch on. I would recommend the Eglu for easy hen keeping, but probably best with a larger and higher run or enclosure.
Excellent quality, easy to keep clean, chickens very happy to go in at night.
Our hen´s are happy to live in the omlet house. We became every day an egg.
Pretty good product,could use some options for fixing down,not sure how weather proof it will be,will just have to wait for some bad weather to see
We have 2 of these for our 4 chickens and 2 ducks. Great for all weather protection and keep our fury friends warm in winter and cool in summer. You can see our happy feathered friends using these great runs if you ever come to visit us. https://www.mybestfrienddogcare.co.uk/
