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/
Very pleased with the quality and finish of the coop and run. My grand-daughter has two male call ducks who seem very happy and settled in their new home, which is a good size and secure from predators. Excellent service and customer care from Omlet Ltd who despite manufacturing problems kept me updated on progress and were very friendly too. All in all although we had to wait for the Eglu it was worth it. Well done Omlet and thanks to Elodie and Nikki.
Very sturdy, easy to assemble and the hens love it.
okay, so I didnt buy this - sue me! we were gifted our eglu from my wife's parents who have since upgraded to a walk in run and cube.. I have used the classic in both with run mode and free standing. i have four girls who sleep in it. there are six more who sleep in the other coop - yet everyone lays in the eglu.
it is far easier to keep clean than the other coop. however I much prefer it raised up, i built a wooden frame for it and having the poop tray at waist height is much more convenient.
the only flaw is that I have only found one firm who make an auto door opener for the eglu - and they are on my purchase list.......
I have enjoyed my 3 chickens and the security of their lovely classic Eglu. They are happy hens who lay well in their happy home. Easy to keep clean and fresh .
